Re: Imlib install location

Nevermind, I found my problem.  An old copy of libgdk_imlib was still in
/opt/gnome/lib.  I had only deleted old libimlib*'s.  Forgot about ldd
for a sec.

The only reason I ever post a question to this list is to jolt my
memory.  Invariably I find the problem within five minutes after
