I was making an assumption based on this line in buildout_osgeolive.cfg:
apache-entry-point = /mapfishsample_2.0/

fwiw, 'svn co' in the /tmp/build_mapfish/ dir is ok, as the
/tmp/build_* dirs are stripped out of the final ISO, but then
a 'cp -r' would need to skip internal .svn/ dirs, so maybe export
is best. I guess 'export' just makes the script being run the
second time less efficient? but that's a minor concern.

I think I sent a followup email, .../bin was a mistake, I meant
to write /usr/local/lib.

/usr/local/lib is already in /etc/ld.so.conf.d/, but you may
want to run ldconfig after this step.

you tested this one, right? :) I'm only pretty-sure it works.
