[CentOS] SeaMonkey on CentOS 6.3

Been a while since I used seamonkey, but needed it yesterday.  The old 
version I had installed (2.11) threw an error when I tried it, so I 
grabbed 2.12.1 from mozilla.com.  It throws the same error:

$ /usr/local/seamonkey/seamonkey &
[1]	7050
$ XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/local/seamonkey/libxpcom.so:
libxul.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.

Of course libxul.so is right there in /usr/local/seamonkey, as it is in 
the other expected mozilla-related places.

Reminds me of the old LD_LIBRARY_PATH issues in Solaris and others. 
What's the modern way to address this?

Is there a yum-installable version of seamonkey somewhere?
