well, simply edit /usr/local/vtex/bin/vlatex and
/usr/local/vtex/bin/vlatexp with your favourite editor and put a

export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1

after the "#!/bin/sh" and before the "vtexlnx" line. So, my
/usr/local/vtex/bin/vlatex is:

export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1
vtexlnx -ov -ox2p -ob2  -\$pc=9  -n1 -pu0 -of=pdf.fm  \
                 - at p{w=210mm,h=297mm,f=cf,g=f,t=f,! @latex $*

Maybe I modified some paramters, too, but that has nothing to do with
this issue.
