I deleted the ld.so.conf.d reference (obselete since the kde3 is not being 
used, only one or two apps.

However, /usr/lib was cited first. This may not matter, however, since the new 
i368-linux-gnu stuff was appended!

Would it be better to get rid of ld.so.conf entirely? Or how should things be 
ordered for proper priority?

Anyway, this bug and be closed. Thanks.
