You should have a /etc/ld.so.conf file. On my sarge-debian system it contains 2
lines :

The 'standard' directory /lib and /usr/lib are always scanned. So you should not
have to add your FrontBase path in ld.so.conf (not sure)

Anyway you need a ld.so.conf file : i suggest you (re)create it with the two
lines above.
