Hu, does IDL 5.4 require libc5?  I only have 5.2 installed, but that
is already libc6. (Try ldd IDL_DIR/bin/bin.linux/idl to see which
libraries are required)

RedHat 6.2 is libc6-based, so the libXpm.so.4 is most probably for
that version - maybe there is the problem.  You can also use ldd
libXpm.so.4 to see which version it is.
