[Gdal-dev] Error compiling gdal: libgrass_I.so: cannot open shared object file

I receive the following error after trying to run gdalinfo/translate after having successfully running configure, make, and make install on gdal 1.3.2:

libgrass_I.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The only errors/warnings that occurred at the end of make was:

/usr/bin/ld: warning: libstdc++.so.5, needed by /usr/local/gdal-1.3.2/.libs/libgdal.so, may conflict with libstdc++.so.6

Note that I specifically complied without Grass support:

./configure \
--without-grass \
--with-png=internal \
--with-jpeg=internal \
--with-gif=internal \
--with-libtiff=internal \
--with-geotiff=internal \
--with-libz=internal \
--with-proj-share=/usr/local/share/proj \
--without-pg \
--with-hdf \
--with-hdf-includes=/usr/include/hdf \
--without-ogdi \
--with-python \
--with-sqlite \

Here's my output from configure:
