set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to what?


after reinstalling wxGTK with the following line is configure :

Code:
zuki@WhiteCastle:~/Desktop/wxGTK-2.6.3$ ./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-unicode
it gave me in the message that the installation has been succeeded and I need to run ldconfig (to update changes) <-- did so. and also to setenv (export) : LD_LIBRARY_PATH but I don't know what to se it to...

LD_LIBRARY_PATH is the environment variable that lists the directories to look in for shared libraries before the standard set of directories. It's usually only used for development and debugging. You probably don't really need to do anything unless wxGTK installed it's shared libraries in a non-standard location. Anyway, that is what LD_LIBRARY_PATH needs to be set to.

Where ever wxGTK installed it's shared libraries. If the directory is somewhere other than those directories in /etc/ld.so.conf, then you need to set it.

For reference, it's not set on my system, either Gentoo or CLFS.
