probles with pdflib for gnuplot

I was trying to install gnuplot.
After making the ./configure i saw that it was missing the pdflib and some gdlib.
I downloaded both and (probably corretly) installed the , because after running ./configure again they were found.
But after installing gnuplot and try to open it i get the message :

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

I searched and the file is present in the directory


Any ideas why it doesnt find the file???

There's two possibilities that immediately spring to mind:
a) the gnuplot you installed wants a different version
b) /usr/local/lib isn't listed in /etc/

What distro are you using?

i think i downloaded the most resent version of pdflib. So idont know if thats the problem
Then my file has only this context:


So maybe i have to add , as you said, usr/local/lib but how do i do that.
I am using Fedora 7.
