[Ardour-Dev] Shared objects

Quite by accident this morning, I noticed that I have a folder:-

/usr/local/lib/ardour2 (with subdirectories called 'engines' and 'surfaces')

and these 3 folders seem to contain copies of my Ardour dynamic libraries,
such as libardour.so and libardour_genericmidi.so.  However, they seem to be
old copies and I'm not sure whether I should be keeping them up to date.
When I launch Ardour, will it use the dynamic libs compiled by scons (in
their respective folders) or do I need to be copying them to these other
folders that I've just discovered?  I don't remember putting them there
myself so presumably something else must have copied them...?

There are some other folders containing 'ardour.bindings', 'ardour.colors'
etc but they're all quite old copies.  Is this something I need to be
worried about?
