If you define them in this way then only the shell knows about these
variables. If you want that also the programs and scripts (like ly2dvi)
that you call from the shell know them (and you do want that in this
case), then you should use the "export" command before the definition:

[bashprompt]$ export LILYPONDPREFIX=/usr/share/lilypond-1.5.58
[bashprompt]$ export LILYINCLUDE=$LILYPONDPREFIX/ly

If you happen to use a c shell (csh) instead of sh or bash, then use
setenv instead of export:

cshprompt> setenv LILYPONDPREFIX /usr/share/lilypond-1.5.58

Good luck,
David Boersma
