It should not be in your path, but in your dynamic library path. You can set 
this by adding /usr/local/lib to the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH, or 
add it to the file /etd/ld.so.conf (which you might prefer because this will 
add /usr/local/lib to the standard places where the dynamic linker will look 
for libraries). After that, run ldconfig as root.
