hi all

i installed a new version of rsync on an old solaris machine we have around.
an old rsync was running before, but now neither is running, both
complaining about dependencies, 
even though the compiling & install went fine, you can see the error  i get
below when i try to run it.

la3000# rsync rsync: fatal: open failed: No such file or directory

so i checked dependencies, and found 2 that were not found. 

la3000# ldd /usr/local/bin/rsync =>  (file not found) =>   /usr/lib/ =>         (file not found) =>        /usr/lib/ =>        /usr/lib/ =>   /usr/lib/ =>     /usr/lib/ =>    /usr/lib/ =>    /usr/lib/

but this seems weird since they both are on the box

la3000# locate

and i modified the path to find them, just in case that was an issue.

la3000# echo $PATH                                  #(parsed)

so now, i'm not sure what to do... i must be missing something rather
obvious and key.

any ideas?
