You have reason. I have tested it installing GTK-1.2 and Glib-1.2 in /opt,
and "ldd-ing" a gtk-lib file. If /opt/glib/lib wasn't in ld.so.conf, it
can't find it.

I thought that ld.so.conf was used by the system to compile, not to use in
"production-mode". A bad concept, now it's ok.

So i could compile any package with the required libraries in /opt, and
then, reinstall that library in /usr/local (for example). If i change
properly the ld.so.conf, all will go ok. Good thing.

Thanks, all days a new thing is learned
