Why rather avoid that?  That is what it is there for to save complex linking errors like this.

I sometimes install stuff in /home/~user for testing and just add the libs PATH as needed.

It is easy and fault proof without having to mess about with build stuff etc. Plus it is read in order, so you can run old/new versions (etc.) with a quick edit.

Obviously, this is no good for a generic build - but again, it is there to solve the issue of having various versions of libs on one system.
