libjscallglue-0.0.2.so is a native library, so it need to be locatable
by the dynamic linker, which defaults to a limited range of

There are 3 ways to fix this:

1. You can add "/usr/local/lib" to /etc/ld.so.conf (or similar),
though this will mean that *all* libraries in that location will be
locatable so can sometimes cause strange conflicts if the same library
is in both /usr/lib and /usr/local/lib.

2. You can "export LD_LIBRARY_DIR=/usr/local/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_DIR"
before you run MonoDevelop, or add this to the MD script.

3. You can install JSCall# to /usr/lib (i.e prefix=/usr) or another
prefix that's already in the linker path. It shouldn't conflict with
