	Thanks for the help. Here is the output of ldd afterstep:

libpng.so.2 =>   /usr/local/lib/libpng.so.2
libz.so =>       /usr/local/lib/libz.so
libm.so.1 =>     /lib/libm.so.1
libX11.so.6.1 =>         /usr/X11R6.4/lib/libX11.so.6.1
libsocket.so.1 =>        /lib/libsocket.so.1
libnsl.so.1 =>   /lib/libnsl.so.1
libSM.so.6 =>    /lib/libSM.so.6
libICE.so.6 =>   /lib/libICE.so.6
libXpm.so.4.11 =>        /usr/local2/lib/libXpm.so.4.11
libXext.so.6.4 =>        /usr/X11R6.4/lib/libXext.so.6.4
libc.so.1 =>     /lib/libc.so.1
libucb.so.1 =>   (file not found)
libresolv.so.2 =>        /lib/libresolv.so.2
libelf.so.1 =>   /lib/libelf.so.1
libdl.so.1 =>    /lib/libdl.so.1
libmp.so.2 =>    /lib/libmp.so.2


	I looks like libucb.so.1 is my last sticking point. Is this truly a bad
thing for the binary to want, or is it a lib I can find and install?
	Most importantly, how can I get around this to get AS running?
