Errors Building FontConfig 2.2.2

Hi all,

This is not strictly an LFS question, as I am using LFS & BLFS commands to
build some packages on my University shell, in my own home directory.
The problem I'm getting is:

[mkipper at flash ~/build/fontconfig-2.2.2]$ ./configure --prefix=$HOME/usr
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
<snip>
checking for FT_Get_First_Char... yes
checking expat.h usability... no
checking expat.h presence... no
checking for expat.h... no
checking xmlparse.h usability... no
checking xmlparse.h presence... no
checking for xmlparse.h... no
configure: error: cannot find expat library

BUT!

[mkipper at flash ~/build/fontconfig-2.2.2]$ find $HOME -name expat.h
/home/mkipper/usr/include/expat.h

AND

[mkipper at flash ~/build/fontconfig-2.2.2]$ echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH
/home/mkipper/usr/lib:

AND

[mkipper at flash ~/usr/lib]$ ls libexpat.*
libexpat.a  libexpat.la  libexpat.so  libexpat.so.0  libexpat.so.0.5.0


I just built expat 1.95.8, the newest version, so why am I getting this
error?

Thanks,
Michael
