Not all directores in the search path are there, a typical Red
Hat/Fedora Core installation won't even mention @libdir at . From ld.so(8):

       The shared libraries needed by the program are searched for in
       various places:

       o      [...]
       o      From the cache file /etc/ld.so.cache which contains a
       compiled list of candidate libraries previously found in the
       augmented library path. [...]

       o      In the default path /lib, and then /usr/lib.  If the
       binary was linked with -z nodeflib linker option, this step is

I.e. you will miss all libs on RH/FC.

Would it make sense to have a proper autoconf setup? lib/lib64
detection etc works fine there. What do you think? I have the
impression that we might be reinventing the wheel.
