I am glad that slept after I sent this.  I was tired.

After reading your email, I realized that I had forgotten to add /usr/lib/ecl to
my /etc/ld.so.conf.  I was too tired to think this even with ldconfig screaming
at me every time I tested the RPM.

I will update the RPM spec file to fix this.  Non-RPM users?  I don't know.
Nowadays, I don't know how people live without package-managers.

OK, Juan?  Or do you have other ideas for fix this?
