Hmm, I think the reason is, that ldconfig can only be executed by root.
Can be mistaken, but I think my memory serves well this time.
"setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH bla" will work for every user. I think, it's
also better to "setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH bla:", the : in the end says,
that after bla any default path is to be appended.
