I had a similar problem a while back on a different distro. IIRC, you 
have to specify the library directory to the compiler. Something like 
'-L/path/to/library/dir -{name of library}'. That's probably not the 
right syntax, but the issue you're having is that at compile time it is 
linking the system version so you need to explicitly tell the 
linker/compiler which one to use via compile time flags. If I'm wrong 
there, I'm sure someone else on the list can point you in the right
