Run 'ldd -d -r /lib64/security/vauth.so' to see what's wrong.

But as a general rule, /lib64/security is not going to be on the library
search path; so either you need libjvm.so to be installed to a system path,
or you need to use an rpath setting on your module to tell the runtime
linker where to find libjvm.
