Oops. Well, that fixed one problem (with the manual test of couchjs).  
I'm now getting the crash on boot - which is really weird, because it  
*was* working before I tried to "fix" spidermonkey. Seems solving one  
problem exposes another; I'll reply to later messages on my efforts in  
the latter case.

However - I had been under the impression that LD_LIBRARY_PATH was  
kind of a hack to get around a bad build, though - doesn't it mean  
that couchjs hasn't linked properly in the first place to the library  
path in the configure command ?

Been a long time since I messed with that kind of thing, though, not  
really a hardcore linux admin, as is probably pretty obvious ...

thanks for your help,
