sudo / alias problem

You probably want something closer to:
    alias PACKAGE "sudo /mpc2/opt/local/macs_1.2.1/bin/macs_createpkg"
since the shell is what expands aliases, if you say 'sudo PACKAGE'
sudo will look for a command named PACKAGE in the user's PATH and
then check to see if the user is allowed to run it.
