How do I tell which are the old versions?  and how do I figure out which
one (/usr/lib or /usr/local/lib) redhat likes?  I *think* redhat wanted it
to go in /usr/lib, because the default went into /usr/local.  I apologize
if these are stupid questions, but I don't think anyone's ever explained
this to me.
