Seamonkey shared objects present but not detected

I have just build Seamonkey 1.1.6 on Fedora 7 x86_64 from the source tarball (as opposed to cvs). I can run the application from its object directory with no problems. However, when I create an installer and extract everything, the program won't run and complains about missing .so files, especially, even though those files are right in the same directory as the application itself. An ls -l of the 'bin' directory shows that these .so files are linked to files within the objectdir, so apparently the .so files created by the installer aren't properly linked? How can I fix this? I don't want to keep the huge objectdir on my desktop just to be able to run the program. Thanks.

It appears best to not build statically--don't really know why, but none of the tutorials online show anyone making a SeaMonkey static build. But this worked for the older Mozilla Suite though... Just fyi, I was able to get a working build (even after 'extracting' to an arbitrary directory after creating the installer) by using the following .mozconfig setup:

ac_add_options --enable-application=suite
mk_add_options MOZ_CO_PROJECT=suite
mk_add_options MOZ_OBJDIR=@TOPSRCDIR@/suite-opt
ac_add_options --disable-debug
ac_add_options --enable-default-toolkit=gtk2
ac_add_options --enable-svg
ac_add_options --enable-svg-renderer=cairo
ac_add_options --enable-canvas
ac_add_options --enable-safe-browsing
ac_add_options --disable-tests
ac_add_options --enable-xft
