This is the content of my ld.so.conf for a 32 bit setup. I think that 
only /usr/lib gets added by the install. I added the rest. I suppose 
this should be added to the dependencies script, and to the Compiling 
SVN trunk scripts. I had something fail to compile on Fedora 8 which 
needed /lib and the others are the result of debugging configure and 
compile errors. You will need the 64bit versions.

#! ***** /etc/ld.so.conf **** remember to run ldconfig!
include ld.so.conf.d/*.conf


         Please let me know if anything I say offends you.
          I may wish to offend you again in the future.
