That is exactly the issue. Adding -L$(WHEREEVER) doesn't help, that
is already there. What is missing is the -rpath setting of in various
libraries all over the place. I'm working on it, hopefully we have
mostly working ports of KDE3 and Gnome before New Year.

The interesting question is why does it break for use, but not for
FreeBSD? Is there proper magic in the configuration scripts to add
-rpath entries or has our ldconfig stopped to work as advised. But
I like the -rpath only way better then having a list of shared lib
