ldd looks normal (at least to me): debian ~/C/plplot_test : ldd test1 linux-gate.so.1 => (0xffffe000) libplplotd.so.9 => /usr/local/lib/libplplotd.so.9 (0xb7eb2000) libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0xb7d65000) libltdl.so.3 => /usr/local/lib/libltdl.so.3 (0xb7d5e000) libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0xb7d5a000) libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0xb7d34000) libcsirocsa.so.0 => /usr/local/lib/libcsirocsa.so.0 (0xb7d2b000) libcsironn.so.0 => /usr/local/lib/libcsironn.so.0 (0xb7d23000) libfreetype.so.6 => /usr/lib/libfreetype.so.6 (0xb7cb4000) libqhull.so.5 => /usr/lib/libqhull.so.5 (0xb7c66000) /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xb7f1a000) libz.so.1 => /usr/lib/libz.so.1 (0xb7c51000) debian ~/OpenSource/plplot-working/plplot-CBS-1 : ldd /home/hbabcock/ C/plplot_test/test1 linux-gate.so.1 => (0xffffe000) libplplotd.so.9 => /usr/local/lib/libplplotd.so.9 (0xb7f79000) libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0xb7e2c000) libltdl.so.3 => /usr/local/lib/libltdl.so.3 (0xb7e25000) libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0xb7e21000) libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0xb7dfb000) libcsirocsa.so.0 => /usr/local/lib/libcsirocsa.so.0 (0xb7df2000) libcsironn.so.0 => /usr/local/lib/libcsironn.so.0 (0xb7dea000) libfreetype.so.6 => /usr/lib/libfreetype.so.6 (0xb7d7b000) libqhull.so.5 => /usr/lib/libqhull.so.5 (0xb7d2d000) /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xb7fe1000) libz.so.1 => /usr/lib/libz.so.1 (0xb7d18000) The only difference I can see in strace is that when I run in /home/ hbabcock/OpenSource/plplot-working/plplot-CBS-1, the program looks in this directory first before looking in /usr/lib, however all the libraries still seem to be found in /usr/lib.
