LIBPATH is not being followed---works on earlier versions of AIX
DESC: Why would a program not use LIBPATH to find a Library.
When a binary file has the SUID or SGID flag set that
Program will not ever use libpath. This is a behavior
that was added as a fix to 4.1.5.
The reason this behavior was introduced was to remove
a security risk.
You can check to see if the SUID or SGID flag is set
by issuing the following command:
ls -l \
if the group execute permission is displayed as an s
then the file has set-group-ID mode.
APAR IX66344 is the apar that stops libpath from being
searched in programs with the SGID flag set.
