One qualification on the crash in my previous message -- I only get an error if I try to run gps2ge from the command line. Double-clicking the executable runs fine, depositing the .kml files in /tmp as described.

I was wondering about that - and I think I've spotted the problem: you're allowed to specify the *path* for storing the KML files, but not the name of the KML file itself - the command you want should be "gps2ge -p ./" or "gps2ge -p ." (the trailing slash is optional). The link file for Google Earth will always be called "gps.kml"
