I have to presume you did --with-js-lib=/usr/local/spidermonkey/lib not
--with-js-lib=/usr/local/spidermonkey/lib64 as it has on the wiki :-)

Try this:

# echo "/usr/local/spidermonkey/lib" >/etc/
# ldconfig

I have couch running under CentOS 5.2 (= RHEL 5.2), but I just used a

BTW Red Hat 4.1 is so ancient that there are no more security fixes for it,
so there are good reasons to upgrade to a later 4.x
