	Clearly, random different linux's can put python in random different
places [ oh, the joys of anarchy ]. No idea how well an absolute path
works with LD_LIBRARY_PATH either.

	So - in general, surely it is better not to hard-code the paths of the
libraries if at all possible.

	Can we get more detail on cases where it doesn't work ?
