I have been trying to go through the sample QOTD plugin documentation,
and when I get to the point where it says:

Now the QOTD server is ready to be instantiated! Let's start up a server
and get a quote from it.

% mktap qotd       
Saving qotd application to qotd.tap...
% twistd -f qotd.tap 
% nc localhost 8007
An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
% kill `cat twistd.pid`

I run "mktap qotd" in my TwistedQuotes directory and I get this:

Unknown command: qotd
Usage:    mktap [options] <command> [command options]

What am I missing?
