[Spread-users] Unable to get the perl module working

Dave Koberstein helped point me in the right direction. It turns out  
that /usr/local/lib was not accessible via ldconfig. I added the /usr/ 
local/lib to /etc/ld.so.conf

I have successfully send a message from a perl module and watched it  
come through via spuser.

Thanks, Dave!
