Did you issue a
as root after you installed the libraries? Because you say you run
Debian jessie, and that has the file:
# libc default configuration
So unless you manually changed the settings for ld.so, this directory
should already be in the system search path. However, invoking ldconfig
as root is a necessary step to scan these directories for new additions,
AFAIK. Possibly this is only necessary if you put the first library in
one of the dirs, I don't have the details ready. But in a normal Debian
jessie system, libraries in this directory should "Just Work"(TM).
Or is this a problem with the 1.6.3 receiving priority over 1.7.3? I
don't know off the top of my head how to fix that, so let's try ldconfig
