	The standard shared library path doesn't include /usr/pkg/lib,
	it seems, so 'abacus' won't fire up.  I believe that the same
	holds for /usr/X11R6/lib.

	If an /etc/ is necessary, the package commands should
	build it.
	$ abacus
	Shared object "" not found
	LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/pkg/lib:/usr/X11R6/lib abacus
