Try a copy, or sym link, of the lib file needed, to /usr/local/lib/, and
be sure file /etc/ld.so.conf has /usr/local/lib in it; or else just name
the directory of the lib file directly in /etc/ld.so.conf. If you are
going to keep the directory that the lib file is in, permanently, I'd be
inclined to sym link it to /usr/local/lib. Then, as root, run
"ldconfig". Try again.
