Robert, I'm not using RH8.0 but I see a possible point of
confusion. Section 4.3 is "Modifying /etc/ld.so.conf" then
section is 5 is "Downloading and compiling." The "ldconfig"
in 4.3 is a good sanity check doesn't help if libmyth*
hasn't been installed.

If 'make install' is run as root per section 5.4, "make"
will run "ldconfig". However, if you 'make install' as a
unprivileged user (which I do intentionally ;-) "ldconfig"
still needs to be run as root after the installation.
