No, I didn't have it installed; it wasn't on my path or even on my
system.  If it were in any of the usual places then "which mt" would
have showed me the path and rpm -qf /bin/mt would have showed me the rpm
and (primarily) man mt would have worked, because I was installing it
only because I needed to read the man page to answer a user question,
not because I actually have a tape drive on my laptop;-)
