On AIX, we just installed some AIX-base-system software that

pkgsrc has /usr/pkg/lib/libexpat.so as a 64-bit object for
fontconfig et al.
In AIX 5.3, expat shouldn't be a shared library. The RPM that IBM
provides as part of their "IBM LInux Applications for POWER" kit uses
/usr/lib/libexpat.a which is a symlink to
/opt/freeware/lib/libexpat.a. Did it come from the Bull Freeware
archive? What TL and SP level are you running?
$ oslevel -s
Can you do a lslpp -w /usr/lib/libexpat.so to see if some installp
fileset installed it?
It was installed from a fileset from a third-party vendor. Not from the
"Toolbox for Linux Applications".
I can't just set LIBPATH in, say, /etc/profile because the [very
important] things that depend on /usr/lib/libexpat.so will break
(and who knows what else).
If only selected users are going to use certain applications, you
could set up /etc/security/environ so that those users get a custom
LIBPATH instead of setting a global one.
I'm hoping to not have to hardwire this stuff into environments. It
becomes unmanageable. I want the executables know where to look for
their dependencies properly.
What's the best way to solve this problem?
 AIX 5.3, xlC 9, pkgsrc-2010Q2. Also the following are set in mk.conf
CFLAGS+= -O3 -qstrict -qcpluscmt -qkeyword=inline
