There are a series of locations searched by the loader:

      The necessary shared libraries needed by the program are
searched for in the following order

       o      Using the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH
(LD_AOUT_LIBRARY_PATH for a.out programs).  Except
              if the executable is a setuid/setgid binary, in which
case it is ignored.

       o      From the cache file /etc/ which contains a
compiled list of candidate libraries previ‐
              ously found in the augmented library path.

       o      In the default path /usr/lib, and then /lib.

Well, if you like to have to define env variables to get your code to
run, go for it, but I'd say that if you install libraries to
/usr/local/lib that ldconfig should be configured to cache the
locations (its configured in /etc/
