sorry, i've misunderstood my problem. i want to install swish-e on my web 
server to be able to use it in cgi scripts. but i'm not able to compile 
programs on the server, so i have to compile it on my workstation (which has 
an almost identical setup to the server ) then try to upload the binaries. 
hence the problem with the linker putting absolute paths to the shared 
libraries, because the directory structure on the server is obviously quite 
different to that here.

i know this isn't a problem specific to swish-e, but i'm having a hard time 
finding an appropriate google search that doesn't just turn up thousands of 
peoples dumps of the output from ./configure for various programs...
