I don't think I've ever used /usr/local for it before, but yeah, it should
search both /usr and /usr/local for them at the very least.

You not using --prefix=/usr makes things unneccessarily complicated.  The
Book is pretty explicit about /usr versus /usr/local.  Go back and do it
as /usr like everyone says.  *sigh*

I've no idea because you only showed a relative link and I don't know
where it begins so I can't tell where it's pointing to.

You need to follow what I said above about using --prefix=/usr
