/opt is now in my path and has run permissions for everyone
(I'm the only user on this stand-alone box)

Out of an abundance of caution, /usr/lib is also now in my path.

usr/lib/ and 
/lib/tls/i686/cmov/ (a symlink pointing to 
are in their expected locations.

But running ./vuescan from the bash console from /opt/VueScan still complains:
john at john-desktop:/opt/VueScan$ ./vuescan
./vuescan: /usr/lib/ version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found (required by ./vuescan)
./vuescan: /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ version `GLIBC_2.7' not found (required by ./vuescan)

Friends, I've followed all of your suggestions, but I'm still no closer to getting vuescan working.
Is there anything else I can or ought to do to get this thing to work?
