Most (all?) X terminal emulators link to shared libraries in
/X11R6/lib (i.e., /usr/X11R6/lib on other systems).  However, the
linker doesn't look in this directory for shared libraries, and will
not honor LD_LIBRARY_PATH when a binary is suid/sgid.  A simple hack
you might use would be to create a symlink in /lib to each symlink in
/X11R6/lib that points to a library there.
