And is it turned on in ssh_config on the client side?

As already mentioned, use yum install libXp. And try to get out of the 
habit of copying around library files ;) I used to do that, and only 
started using yum when I did the F7 install on this machine, and I must 
say it is quite nice. By the way, I have Matlab installed on this F7 
X86_64 quad-core machine, and it installed and runs fine.
