Of course, I wasn't suggesting that. What I was suggesting is that  
this is a quick way to see where the files are typically stored.

In fact, the documentation suggests that these environment variables  
can be used if you want to store libraries in an unusual place. That  
being said, I think that if you're not developing an Aqua  
application, it's fairly reasonable to expect libraries to be stored  
in the usual locations (current directory, /usr/lib and /usr/local/ 
lib).  Oh yes, and users having installed OpenDarwin will have a  
number of libraries below /opt/local, too.

Somehow, I think this is just muddying things further!
