So do I and it's fine for me with both a 68k as well as a PPC system.  The shared library search path is (off the top of my head)

- directory where program is, so in our case where the VM is.
- extensions folder
- folders within the extensions folder
- system folder?

This is detailed in gory detail in the PPC runtime arch bit of Inside Macintosh, and, since it's been a while I'm not sure if I haven't dropped some of the possible places.  Even so, either in the same directory as the VM or in the extensions folder should be fine.  If I were you I'd leave it in the same folder as the VM.
