Don't NAG provide static copies of their libraries?
Yes, if you link the dynamic libraries, you must make them visible on
each node, with the path set in LD_LIBRARY_PATH. On such a small
cluster, (or with a fast shared file system), a usual way is to put them
in a directory mounted across all nodes.
Since you talk about a "work-around," you can copy the library folder to
your own file system for each node, to check that you've got the hang of it.
The LD_LIBRARY_PATH setting can be done in your user settings so it
doesn't affect anyone else.
