This may also be a problem, but I'm pretty sure it's not this problem.

The issue here is that libimf has never been a system library (it's
not defined in /usr/lib), it's an Intel runtime library (and there's
only one version of it). I believe the issue is that somehow this


does not expand correctly, when the test is run, to pick up the users
environment, hence the dyld error.
