This is working now.  Thanks again for your help.  This dramatically
enhanced performance.

When running from the shell you most likely have LD_LIBRARY_PATH
set to include /usr/local/lib.   When Apache starts from boot
this is not set so "libgcc_s.so.1" can not be found as it is not in a
secure library area.

You have 2 choices...

1)  Add the correct LD_LIBRARY_PATH values to your Apache startup
    script in /etc/init.d/xxxxx

2)  Use 'crle' to include /usr/local/lib as a secure library
