Method A:  Add the path /usr/local/lib to /etc/ and run ldconfig
as root.  This adds it to your library search path.

Method B:  When configuring, add --prefix=/usr as an option.  This tells
install to place the library files in /usr/lib.  Note that this also places
the binaries in /usr/bin.  Alternativly, using --libdir=/usr/lib changes
only the location of the libraries.  Use ./configure --help to see what
options are available.

Method C:  Add /usr/local/lib to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.

   By (the) which (will) we are sanctified through the offering of the
body of Jesus Christ once for all,  And every priest standeth daily
ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can nev-
er take away sins:  but this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for
sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God;  From henceforth ex-
pecting till his enemies be made his footstool.  For by one offering he
hath perfected forever them that are sanctified.
