Yeah, thought that kind of thing might be a problem. The Fedora
libraries are linked to different versions of libraries - in particular,
to a different version of glibc, which it seems quite unhappy about.
Adding Fedora's /lib to the path as well (so it can find Fedora's glibc)
might help - but that doesn't on the face of it seem like a good idea.
