  I haven't installed via rpm, but by tarball. I guess that my problem boils
down to identifying where the different versions are installed.

  Usually, I do a vanilla ./configure. Yesterday, at the suggestion of a
local user group member, I used the --prefix=/usr switch. I'll try without
it again.

  What command will tell me which libraries are installed, and where each
one is?
