Well David lets see this might be a good start:

tux:~ $ ls /etc/ld.so.conf.d/
fakeroot.conf  lib32-glibc.conf  *qt3.conf*  *xulrunner.conf*

tux:~ $ cat /etc/ld.so.conf.d/qt3.conf

tux:~ $ pacman -Qo /etc/ld.so.conf.d/qt3.conf
/etc/ld.so.conf.d/qt3.conf is owned by qt3 3.3.8-18

Look at lines 116 & 117

Look at lines 67 & 68

A little bit of self help could go a long way...
