You need to have a .nALFSrc in your home directory. In this case
you were running nALFS as user root so it is looking in the /root

An example of the .nALFSrc file can be found in the /docs directory
of your nALFS source tarball (docs/nALFSrc). Copy this to your home 
directory as .nALFSrc and make any ammendments that you need to it 
(although the defaults are pretty good).
