Make sure /usr/local/lib is in your runtime libpath: edit
/etc/ld.so.conf to add /usr/local/lib, and then run "/sbin/ldconfig". 
This will permanently add /usr/local/lib to your system's runtime lib

Don't put for tomorrow what you can do today, because if 
you enjoy it today you can do it again tomorrow.
