On a related note, is it wise to have these libraries using the same names as system
libraries? libxinerama is the same as libXinerama with the exception of case. I
believe the JDK also has a libjpeg which is identically named to the system install.
Could it not be libjxinerama.so, libjavajpeg.so or some such?
