The awt code attempts to load the unversioned, libXmu.so, rather than
the versioned, libXmu.so.6 (for X11R6).  Debian-based distributions
don't include these unversioned files in their non-dev packages.

I think we decided that we should attempt to load the known-good
versioned .so files first and if that fails try to load the unversioned
