Hi, Armin

Thanks for your reminding. My pypy is now in 2.0.0 beta2 version. I'll
recompile it.

I'm using Linux Mint 14, which is based on the Ubuntu 12.10. On this
distro, Only /etc/ld.so.conf can be used.
I tested many times.

$ cat /etc/ld.so.conf
include /etc/ld.so.conf.d/*.conf

$ sudo ldconfig

>>>> ctypes.CDLL('libMyClassDict.so')
<CDLL 'libMyClassDict.so', handle <_ffi.CDLL object at
0x00007fcefaaf3c20> at 7fcefaeac2f8>

I do not know why. Maybe Mint has disabled the LD_LIBRARY_PATH for
some reasons or a bug...

Thanks for your help.

Best regards,
Xia Xin
