Hi All,

I'm trying to build Python 2.6 as a shared library, so I did:

   ./configure --enable-shared
   make altinstall

No obvious signs of failure, but when I try and use the resulting 
python, I get:

python2.6: error while loading shared libraries: 
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Why might that be?
