Depending on your installation, check either the setting of the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH or the path in /etc/ and make sure that which ever of these you have used points to the package sub-directory ('libs') containing the asreml shared object (.so) files.
I have that set in ~/.bash_profile and R-2.8.1 is quite happy about it so I can't be far off target. There must be something different in R-2.9.0 which decides against looking there. Are you indicating that I should use /etc/ ? I don't have access to edit it. At present, all it has is:

and the directory it's in has these:
  -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 94960 Mar 25 10:56
  -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 28 Oct 9 2006
  drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Dec 6 06:24

 /etc/ has this:

  used 28 available 31464792
  drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Dec 6 06:24 .
  drwxr-xr-x 101 root root 12288 May 6 04:02 ..
  -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 20 Sep 14 2007 qt-i386.conf

qt-i386.conf would have nothing to do with this lot I think would be safe to say.

The might have something in it which needs updating or something along those lines. I'm totally ignorant of its workings, so all manner of subtleties could be behind the problem I'm experiencing.
Even so, I'd have thought I need to find out what R-2.9.0 is doing differently. It's probably not a question for the Rhelp list since we're using something rather different from what "standard" R packages use.
