It's hard to know what is wrong. Here's some things to check:

1. Do you have a file called XaLeap_wcl (of non-zero length) in
   $AMBERHOME/dat. Is your $AMBERHOME environment variable set?

2. You can manually "setenv XENVIRONMENT $AMBERHOME/dat/XaLeap_wcl" and
then run "xaLeap" (this is what the xleap script does for you). Does this

3. You could reinstall leap and look carefully at the log file to see if
there were any errors in the installation step.

..good luck...dac
