Question newbe ques for WINE

hello, I recently compiled and installed wine-20030709 ver in a red hat 9, and I follow all the instructions, finally at the end of the instalation this message shows in the end:

The installed Wine libraries will not be found!
You can either:
Add the line '/usr/local/lib' to /etc/ and run /sbin/ldconfig
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/lib

what does this means???I'm a newbie in linux and I don't catch it yet, I know to add the line '/usr/local/lib' to the /etc/ file, but what I have to do with this : export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/lib
thanks for your help.

If you added the line to /etc/ then all you need to do is run "/sbin/ldconfig" as root. That's it! Have fun.....
