[SunHELP] libiconv.so.2

My experience with default installs is that crle only knows about 
/usr/lib. When I add a new box to nagios|plugins, I usually only have to 
add /usr/local/lib for libiconv.

The plugins on Solaris 8|9|10 DO NOT WORK with /usr/lib first in the 
library path order, for me at least. That is with a vanilla SUNWxcall 

I always have to use; crle -l /usr/local/lib:/usr/lib; after installing 
the plugins on target boxes with gcc and libiconv from precompiled binaries.

I will reinforce the statement that having an extra root shell open when 
changing global environment things|stuff has saved my ass more than 
once. Also note that *.bak or *.YYMMDD is a great idea, in general.
