Yes!  It took over a month to get to the bottom of the last problem like
this and it only took a minute with the helpful error message.

It should try to load versioned names first.  We know classlib works
with X11R6 but I don't know if anyone has tested it with X11R4/5/7?
We should try to load libXtst.so.6 (and libXtst.so.7 if that has been
tested?) and then libXtst.so.  It is clear from bug reports that (at
least) Debian and Ubuntu don't consider the lack of unversioned .so
files in runtime packages to be an error.  So it is down to us to make
it work for the common case - i.e. only versioned .so file present.
