I found that a version of ekiga installed in /usr/local, will not find
its pwlib codecs in /usr/lib... I think that mabe there is an arguement
for having a few fallback locations if the compile time option is not
available.... /usr/lib, /usr/local/lib and the 64 bit equivalents would
be a good start...   Is there any reason not to do this?
