It appears that my problem was an env var. But the lib it was ref wasn't
in /etc/ld.so.conf. I'm fogetting what I've done and haven't done. It's
been about 16 hours on this. /usr/local/pgsql/lib was in dl.so.conf and
/usr/lib wasn't.

But this also exposed another problem I'm having. :} ldconfig is
warning about symlinks. Should all the files in /usr/lib be ln'd to /lib
files? This makes sense a a security precaution. I think.
