Too late now, but did you run ldconfig *after* changing the order in 
ld.so.conf. Ldconfig creates ld.so.cache, I *think* that ldconfig will 
change the search order.

The problem is with ld. It actually has a list of paths which it searchs 
down to find libraries. That much is clear from 'man ld'. Where that 
path is stored/changed etc. if it is NOT ld.so.conf is not so 
clear....As I said, I think that ldconfig does that but that is really 
just a hunch.
