I was afraid of this. There are two possibilities: The binary has an rpath
hard coded, which happened before I fixed my specs file. Or the linker does
not search the /usr/lib directory at all.
As a first fix, link /usr/lib -> /lib if you don't have the usr symlink.
I will investigate this. (please send me the output of
"strings /gnu/bin/dpkg | grep rpath -")
