Yes thank you, it probably does.  Should my .xinitrc now include the path to 
the new AfterStep?  Should it look like this:

exec /usr/local/share/afterstep/

or should I include the path to the binaries as well?

I've only created one .xinitrc file before, and that only had "exec 
afterstep" in it.  Sorry to be so ignorant, but I am learning (slowly).
