Re: [PATCH] add /usr/X11R6/lib and /usr/local/lib to Linux sys_lib_dlsea

Lets take ImageMagick as a sample package.  This is often delivered
with libraries under /usr/X11R6/lib since it is seen to be an X11
application.  However, if a user configures and builds from source,
the default installation prefix puts the libraries in /usr/local/lib.
Does your patch increase the risk that the wrong shared library will
be used (searching /usr/X11R6/lib before /usr/local/lib)?
