I can't see it! What you see is a symlink to libslang.so.1.4.9, but
where is the file?

Symlinks are often used to provide "compatabilty" for applications when
a shared object is updated but the binary interfaces are still good for
older versions. They allow an app to link to libslang.so, libslang.so.1
or libslang.so.1.4.9. And they never no what they really get, except
they get what they need.

Is that a silly question? If things are not working, *something* went
wrong. ;) I suggest you *carefully* try to reinstall the packages that
seem to have problems *exactly* as the book shows. Stop when the first
error is seen.
Then review the sections of the book and FAQ and web site about "good
requests for help" and post some information that seems related to your
problem and may give folks enough information (but not way *too* much)
to help you.
