I found that for some reason with RH8 adding /usr/local/lib to 
/etc/ld.so.config then running ldconfig didn't work for me. I have no 
explanation, as my system seems to be running great in other respects. 
Anyway, my work around was to manually copy files from the 
/usr/local/lib directory to the /usr/lib directory manually. I did this 
after the installation of each prerequisite that installed a file 
there. For instance after installing lame, I copied the files over 
before I went to the next step of the install. Pain, but I don't know 
whats going on. Hope that helps.
