Problems running gphoto2

I'm just starting using fedora3 and installed libgphoto and gphoto and now as I'm trying to run gphoto2 the following error is stated:
gphoto2: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

As I located:
whereis /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/

What should I do to get the gphoto work properly??

This is a complete stab in the dark, but maybe gphoto2 is expecting the libraries to be in a different place, somewhere like /usr/lib instead of /usr/local/lib. So, you could at least test my hypothesis by using a creating-some-symbolic-links hack, and if it gphoto2 works, you could then work on finding a cleaner solution. Anyways, in case you don't know, here's what you'd type in as root to create the symbolic links:

# ln -s /usr/local/lib/ /usr/lib/
# ln -s /usr/local/lib/ /usr/lib/
