/usr/local/lib IS included in standard search path for shared
libraries. Also LD_LIBRARY_PATH is an option unless beast is set-user-ID
and set-group-ID executable. If this is libtool issue, it may be realted
to recent switch to ELF OpenBSD executables. If so, 1.3.5p3 version of
libtool (OpenBSD ports) is likely to have fixes for it. I'll check if
1.3.5p3 works.
