Running 'make install' after various attempts seems to have done it. 

I was all along under the impression that the dynamic linker would 
pick the libxenlight in the current dir, which is why I hadn't run 
'make install' every so often, but did instead occasionally run 'make 
clean all' Coming to think of it, if the DLD was to pick the library 
from the current directory, a world of security bugs and pain would 
ensue, but for some reason I kept expecting the behaviour to be that.

Thanks though!
