You need your environment set up as in the installation docs. Basically
add this to your .bashrc:
declare -x EMBOSS_ACDROOT="/usr/share/EMBOSS/acd"
declare -x EMBOSS_DATA="/usr/share/EMBOSS/data"
declare -x EMBOSS_DATABASE_DIR="/usr/share/EMBOSS/data"
declare -x EMBOSS_DOCROOT="/usr/share/EMBOSS/doc"

substituting /opt/BioBrew/EMBOSS for /usr/share/EMBOSS

<shameless self-plug> alternatively, if you're using redhat, you can
install EMBOSS through <a href="http://apt.bea.ki.se>BioRPMS</a>
</shameless self-plug>
