Not sure why the silly thing doesn't know about its own existence.

One thing is certain: the installer should add '/opt/GoogleEarth' to
'/etc/ld.so.conf' and do `ldconfig`, otherwise the dynamic linker won't
find the GoogleEarth libraries. Once done, the binary still won't run,
but at least `ldd /opt/GoogleEarth/googleearth-bin` will report no
missing libraries.
