So why does configure recognizes to which libraries to link to? It
corectly uses the libs from lib64 directory. So there must be a way to
atomaticaly detect this (I think gcc is already choosing the correct
intsall dir automaticaly).
But I will have a look at the configure script and tell you if I've
found a way...
