Thanks for the suggestion.  tried that already, however (using chrpath),
but the library then fails completely.

As I understand it, this is tied to how xulrunner is compiled, so if it 
"just works" on Fedora, I suspect this to be becuase the library paths 
of xulrunner is already included in some lookup path somewhere.  I 
really do not know the details here, which is why I involved Mike Hommey 
who packages xulrunner for Debian and have offered to help improve the 
Hulahop code to (as I understand it) a more generic style usable not 
only on systems happening to be modelled the same as Fedora.

Kind regards,
