This means your $fpath value is not covering the directories where
these functions are defined.  There are several reasons this might be
happening, but the first two I'd check for are:
(1) The functions have not been installed in the same fpath locations
that were compiled into the binary.
(2) There is an (outdated?) /etc/z* file changing the value of fpath.
