It looks like your tools running on the host are picking up the target
library.  Make sure you are putting the new libraries somewhere where
the dynamic linker does not search.  You may need to se the
LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to pick up your host libraries
first--e.g., put /lib on LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
