[GRASS-dev] Building GRASS dev - editing ld.so.conf

I am attempting to build GRASS on my machine and I suppose I am having
trouble.  I am so bewildered by all of this I can't actually be sure.  I am
posting to request help.  Here is my situation:

I am new to GRASS development, and I am working on GSoC on integrating PDAL
interoperability.   I have not yet set up my project's wiki page or I would
link it in this sentence.

I am running OSGeo-live on Oracle Virtual Box with my base OS being Windows

My mentor, Vashek Petras, directed me to start here:
and work through the build procedure.  On that page, I am at the point
which states,

ensure that /usr/local/lib is added to /etc/ld.so.conf and ...

Well I have not created /usr/local/lib, so will it create it if it is not
present?  But more importantly, what is /etc/ls.so.conf.  I feel I need to
understand what role this file plays before I start modifying it.
Currently it contains one single line:

include /etc/ld.so.conf.d/*.conf

Also, I created a different dev path than /usr/local.  It is

and the proj directory resides there.  Should I create /usr/local/lib
