Within the documentation page for the Oncilla-Sim $prefix is probably used wrong. The documentation states:

export PATH=$prefix/bin/:$PATH
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$prefix/lib/pkgconfig/
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$prefix/oncilla-sim-0.2/lib/
export PYTHONPATH=$prefix/lib/python2.7/site-packages/
oncilla-sim-wizard create -w $prefix/oncilla-sim-0.2/share/oncilla-sim/wizard.cfg $prefix/oncilla-sim-0.2/

If $prefix points to the parent directory* of the actual distribution, which is supposed to be /tmp as default, then the PATH export in line 1 as well as the PKG_CONFIG_PATH and the PYTHONPATH exports are wrong as they lack the oncilla-sim-0.2 path elements.

*Actually, I wonder if $prefix should point to the parent directory of a distribution. Shouldn't $prefix instead reference the base directory of a distribution, which in this case would be /tmp/oncilla-sim-0.2?
