The proper way to deal with this is to set LDFLAGS to include the
correct lib directories in the correct order before running configure.
While symlinks work, it can lead to a mess if done too often.

On 64-bit RHEL-based systems, I've found that /usr/lib64 and lib64 are
often overlooked and must be explicitly specified in LDFLAGS. I don't
know why could be poorly written configure scripts.

The proper search path for include directories should be defined in
