I'm on Fedora 16, with a fairly recent svn checkout. I built and 
installed with cmake -DSWORD_BINDINGS=Python, to the default location of 

In Python, when I try import Sword, it gives the following error:
ImportError: libsword.so.1.6.2: cannot open shared object file: No such

However, I see libsword.so.1.6.2 in /usr/local/lib.

Any thoughts?
