setting the LD_LIBRARY_PATH?

Off you go! You may need to do this for anything else you localise this
way - if the libs are not in a "standard" path
(/lib, /usr/lib, /usr/local/lib) then you need an app-specific override
for them by either using the trick above or setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH. The
two are synonymous, but the file-based way is more portable.
