Thanks Brion,

  What I found was sort of on that lines. My .cshrc for the system that 
worked had been given access to the libraries I needed but the system I 
was trying to upgrade was not letting me get to the correct libraries, 
once we made the change to .cshrc I could run the update.php script with 
no problem.
