[xml] Problems compiling libxml2 with finding libiconv RH 5.2

Can anyone shed some light on this.

Ok, I have a redhat 5.2 system with the newest glibc upgrade packages
available.  Now, I've compiled libiconv and placed it in /usr/local/lib and
setup the appoppriate ld.so.conf entry and reran ldconfig.  ldconfig -v
shows the libraries in there so that's all good.

When I go to compile _anything_, or ./configure - that looks for libiconv it
does not work!  It never finds it, ever.  Even though it is there, in ld.so
it still can't find it.  I think it's something to do with the linker more
than anything, but has anyone ever saw this problem before?  I've had it but
just copied over the libraries to /lib and then it worked, but this time
it's not working.  It did it for a few other libraries, not just libiconv,
so it's not a problem with iconv.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thx a lot
