Same here.

I can not reproduce it just now. I uninstalled the precompiled version,
did make install from git a couple of times, uninstalled it again,
installed the procompiled version again, repeated everything a couple of
times, and it seems to work now. The exact symptoms were:

$ lilypond-book
Usage: musicxml2ly [OPTION]... FILE.xml

$ musicxml2ly
Usage: musicxml2ly [OPTION]... FILE.xml

$ which lilypond-book

$ which musicxml2ly

$ ls -l /usr/local/bin/lilypond-book

... /usr/local/bin/lilypond-book -> /usr/local/bin/lilypond-wrapper.python

$ ls -l /usr/local/bin/musicxml2ly

... /usr/local/bin/musicxml2ly -> /usr/local/bin/lilypond-wrapper.python

If I fall again into the problem, I'll say. Thanks Federico!
