mysterious error from ly2dvi

Thanks to the folks who attempted to help me compile Lilypond from
source, but I gave up and installed a Mandrake RPM I found at
I tried to alert Han Wen Nienhuys that the link to the Mandrake RPM on
the Lilypond web page was broken, but my e-mail bounced back,
because apparently my ISP (Earthlink) is on someone's blacklist. If anyone
knows of a more recent Mandrake RPM, I'd be grateful to hear about it.

Anyhow, I installed Lilypond successfully, and now
I'm trying to compile the following sample file:
  \score {
    \notes { c'4 e' g' }
but I get an error as shown below. Can anyone suggest what to
do about this? This is with Lilypond 1.4.2.
