Default simpleFoam: error while loading shared libraries...

I keep running into the same problem since I updated the Qt installation which was completely unrelated to OpenFoam and maybe it's unrelated to the problem also! Initially I was thinking, that the installation is messed up for some reason but I can't find an error.

I keep getting the following error:

simpleFoam: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

All tutorials and my own simulation which ran without any issues on my OF 2.4 installation, no matter whether I try to run them on one or multiple cores results in the same error.

If I look at the installation, everything (like some experimentally turbulence models I use) seems to be in place.

The bashrc entry is there, parafoam works fine, $FOAM_RUN, ompi_info, $WM_PROJECT_DIR produce the correct results/path hence I can't figure out what's causing the problem or where OF tries to locate shared objects ?!

Any ideas?
