What have you tried a couple of times?

Copying binary databases among systems that are not running nearly
identical operating systems on nearly identical hardware is generally
unwise.  If sizes of datatypes, not to mention byte orders, differ
between the systems, the database will appear to be corrupted on
one of the systems.

I can't think of a library that would matter.

Again, what sort of hardware and software are you using?  What
are the contents of your whiteclnt and included files?
