Thanks all.
The problem was with misc. libs of previous versions still in existence. 
I feel foolish for crying wolf as I'm usually pretty careful about
such things.  I must have gotten my hands crossed as I was building
to install in /usr/local and had previous installs, and multiple versions,
in /usr; I should've been more thorough.

thanks again,
Bill Pier
