Problem building Audacity 1.3

I am using SUSE 9.3 and have been trying to build Audacity 1.3 beta from source code. To do this I had to compile 4 other modules as well - wxGTK, libmad, libogg and libvorbis. I used the standard "./configure" "make" and finally as root "make install" procedure for each of these as well as finally for audacity itself. All appears to have gone smoothly, However, when I come to run audacity I get the following message

audacity: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The file certainly exists in /usr/local/lib as read-only. Can you please let me know how I should now proceed to get audacity to work.

You may need to run ldconfig after you install libraries yourself.
