Okay, I moved /etc/ld.so.conf. (And I replaced my conflicting
/usr/local/lib/libvorbis.so.0 file). And now /usr/pkg/bin/ogg123
But now my /usr/local/bin/ogg123 does not work:
Shared object "libvorbisfile.so" not found
I see from the FAQ that I could rebuild it with -R (point to the correct
It works fine when I use LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib.

I have a variety of a.out and ELF files.
My /etc/ld.so.conf also listed /usr/X11R6/lib. With it removed I received:
Shared object "libX11.so.6" not found
$ ldd `which rxvt`
-lX11.6 => not found
-lc.12 => /usr/lib/libc.so.12
I guess this was also built not knowing what library search path to use.
Thanks for the help. Time to recompile a bunch of tools.
