Does "make check" work without setting DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH or copying
libxapian_jni.jnilib anywhere?  It should do...

We don't install the JNI library anywhere special on other platforms, so

want it installed system-wide.  I'm open to persuasion though,
especially if there's a suitable place to install on other platforms too.
