understood ... i'd already found your earlier posts (thx!) and had tried 
various combos of movig the static libs to a separate dir, 
--with-ldflags/cppflags, etc. ... just haven;t been able to get 'configure' to 
accept that LIBS ad HEADERS are same version.

it fids the CORRECT (i.e., *my*) version of the headers, but simply refuses to 
query the correct LIBS ... it keeps grabbing the OSX-native libs i /usr/lib

i suppose i could temporarily MOVE/RENAME the originals ... but that 'wrankles' 
a bit.

thx.  i'd already caught that and changed appropriately for ".so" --> ".dylib"
