I didn't touch .  I simply added a file to the
/etc/ directory.  I see that the manual page implies that
/lib(64) and /usr/lib(64) are searched *after* others specified in .

I wonder why I never saw this happen before.

Yes, this would work, but it is a pain.  I guess if Oracle must ship
their versions of core system libraries, it is required.  Bad form,
