I promised a final report on my solution.  For me it was easiest to add
"-static" to "LIBS" in "Makefile.conf", i.e., link all of the binaries
statically.  The size of your binaries will increase to about 150%, but
in exchange everything will "just work."  If you really want dynamic
linking, David gave you the way in a post yesterday in the same thread.
