This isn't much of a response, but just so you know that I haven't

This looks familiar, but I can't remember the resolution.

There's a small chance that --enable-shared fixes the pathname problem

make sense to me now. (Too bad I didn't say in the README *why*
--enable-shared should be used.)

I hope to investigate more soon.
