I would rather the app not have to care where the libraries are, but
for some odd reason the autotools in Fedora uses a default prefix of
/usr/local rather than /usr

If this is not a standard location then maybe this is an autotools
bug? I shouldn't have to tell the autotools where it is appropriate to
install things for the operating system it ships with :-/

Either way, I expect the default settings to just work.
