That'll be an autoconf bug - it should be setup to look in the correct
libraries for the platform it's running on.  I just use the
AC_CHECK_FUNCS macro which is supposed to do everything automatically.

Not sure how I'd do that kind of thing manually... I'll have to look
in the autoconf instructions and see how the macro works.
