  This means that the server cannot locate a library that it was dynamically 
linked against.  I'm unsure offhand, as I cannot remember, exactly where 
solaris gets these paths, but those paths are more then likely not including 
the path where the libpth.so file is located.

  I *BELIVE*, but am not sure, that the precompiled version available is 
statickly linked, hence, doesn't attempt to load the library..
