Yes, it's the scripts that are prepending things , I'd have though  
/usr/local should come after but I'll need to dig to get the order  
corrected.

I still don't understand what it's picking from /usr/local/lib since  
/usr/local/lib is not in path or ld_library_path and ldd shows it loading  
 from /usr/local/lib first no /usr/local. I must have an incomplete idea of  
the loading mechanism.

Your suggestion of /opt is probably the easiest solution. Thanks. (and  
Micheal too)
