Those files aren't there.  As for the directory, yes, it is correct.  You have 
no idea how much time I spent on poking around until I found out that the 
base-package should reside in there (as opposed to what the documentry said).   
I think it may have to do with the fact that I placed FlightGear 
under /usr/local/FlightGear instead of /usr/local.

Obviously, I don't have the libnvidia-tls.so.1 symlink.  Other than that, 
everything else is similar to your's except libGLcore.so.1 -- it's not even 

As for strace, FlightGear is looking at everywhere for libGL.so except in the 
right directory.  I don't get it. =/
I am going to recompile FlightGear again tomorrow morning.
