Hi Nathaniel,
I get the same thing.
I know my LD_LIBRARY_PATH is not set .
Even If say

env LD_LIBRARY_PATH="" phenix



I get the same error
libwx_gtk2ud-2.8.so.0 not found

Also as I mentionned. When I do set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH. That *.so
file is very well in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
So I dont know why phenix or wx does not find it.
