When creating an executable that uses shared libraries you can record  
in it the path to the shared libraries. The -R option of ld does this  
and gcc too has a switch to arrange such things. (And GNU/Linux can  
be prepared to look for shared libraries in many places.)

I still would like to know why the executable was built to use shared  
libraries since I think XeTeX is set up to be linked to static  
libraries ...



Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want.
