Ah, my bad. I had it in my head that --libdir is a configure flag for
specifying where to look for the libs.

But, even with my /etc/ looking like


I still get the configure output saying 

	checking for the default library search path... /lib /usr/lib

Maybe I'm getting the wrong end of the stick here but isn't there a way
of specifying on the configure command line where to look for additional
libraries? Maybe I need to do some more reading.
