Usually you can use:

find . -name "libmplib.a"

to find files from the terminal.

Sorry but I thought I explicitly said in my OP that this program only
now takes *hardcoded* drawing commands -- i.e. those that are within
the CPP. Obviously though, such a program shouldn't accept any
parameters, so that *is* a bug. Thanks for pointing that out.
