ah!  GNU ld was configured to search /usr/local/lib, whereas
/usr/ucb/ld won't search it.  Isn't gcc configured to use GNU ld?

Just add -R/usr/local/lib to LDFLAGS and you're done.  I'm not sure we 
should do this by default, though, because gcc won't accept -R on all
platforms, and configure won't use libtool (that accepts it) to
perform its tests :-(
