On Unix-like platforms, you have to use "./ppcarm" to execute the ppcarm
binary in the current directory instead of the one in the PATH. The
reason is that many Unix systems are (or can be) multi-user and that
e.g. the /tmp directory is writeable by everyone, so if someone would
put a program called "ls" in /tmp that was malevolent, a lot of users
would be caught by that.
