swig not found on configure


installed swig 1.3.19 according to instructions. swig executable was placed in default usr/local/bin.
tried to install gnu solfege 1.4.10 according to instructions:
./configure rendered this:
loading cache ./config.cache
checking for python... /usr/bin/python
checking python version... 2.2
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler (gcc ) works... yes
checking whether the C compiler (gcc ) is a cross-compiler... no
checking whether we are using GNU C... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for swig... no
configure: error:
*** You need to install swig. You can find it at *****
*** and it is probably available in a binary package from the CD or
*** ftp site of your favourite linux distro.
swig is installed and solfege's configure script doesnt allow a path option for swig's location.

did how do i make solfege recognize the existence of swig??

First of all make sure /usr/local/bin is in your path
echo $PATH
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin
if the package has shared libs they were prolly installed in /usr/local/lib make sure it is under $LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/lib
or in /etc/ in this case you need to run /sbin/ldconfig to update /etc/
