Dynamic loading problem

Just installed libguile-1.6 and guile-gtk-1.2 on SuSE 7.3. Loading gtk
failed. The reason is an inconsistency between ltdl.c and linux dlopen.

>From man dlopen:

       the file is searched for in the following locations:

              A colon-separated list of directories in the user's
              LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.

              The list of libraries cached in /etc/ld.so.cache.

              /usr/lib, followed by /lib.

ltdl.c apparently does not consult /etc/ld.so.cache and thus fails to
find the installed extension.

LD_LIBRARY_PATH is not under direct user control on SuSE 7.3. It is not
even under obvious sysadmin control.
