Well, you probably should, even though this error doesn't mean that you
need to.  Check your /etc/ld.so.conf file and make sure it contains
/usr/X11R6/lib
If it doesn't, then add the line and run 'ldconfig' as root.  You might
then want to try to figure out what other directories should be in your
/etc/ld.so.conf and aren't; my (bo) system lists the following:
/usr/X11R6/lib/Xaw95
/usr/X11R6/lib
/usr/local/lib
/usr/lib/libc5-compat
/lib/libc5-compat
/usr/X11R5/lib
/usr/X11R6/lib/i486-linuxaout

I don't know how you'd go about constructing the list of what should be in
/etc/ld.so.conf, though.  (a find for all dirs containing files ending in
'*.so' produces too many erroneous entries)
