I had a nice build system set up on my VM ubuntu 8.10 server until I 
broke the VM. :) After rebuild the VM I am obviously reinstalling all 
the packages.

Boost Python is causing me trouble. I built it from svn using bjam, 
boost 1_40_0. I can compile my python extension without error but when I 
run it the python code that uses it, I get:

ImportError: libboost_python-gcc43-d-1_40.so.1.40.0: cannot open shared 
object file: No such file or directory

I have this file on my system, and have copied it to /usr/local/lib

simon at fenixurth:~/WorkingCopies/server/extended$ locate 

Why is this not found?
