It most likely is because Balsa doesn't know where to find the library.
Although you compiled the library, by default most systems do not look in
/usr/local/lib for shared libraries.
There are two options; You can set an environment variable, LD_LIBRARY_PATH
to the location of the shared library (/usr/local/lib). Or, if you have
root access, you can add /usr/local/lib to /etc/ld.so.conf and run ldconfig
to add /usr/local/lib to the default search path.
