When I compiled on Solaris 9 this problem seemed to go away if I put in
/usr/local/lib in LD_LIBRARY_PATH and then re-compiled.  I'm not entirely
sure that's what fixed it but you could try it if you want.

or try 3.0.1rc2.  We've added some internal code to
work around common character set issues like these.
