I don't make the rules! ;-)
I don't think the problem is having '/usr/pkg/lib' in ld.so.conf,
I think that shared library management through '/etc/ld.so.conf'
is the problem. It is apparently something that was added to the
ELF spec and (according to the FAQ below) has numerous disadvantages...
Take a look:
In pkgsrc, most packages are built to properly pass runtime
path information on to the linker.
Hope this is helpful.
