From Richard Wilbur (Richard please update the tickets if you can, Savannah does not update tickets via email):

ubuntu@ubuntu:~/test$ ld --verbose | grep SEARCH | awk '{ gsub(/;/,
"\n"); print }' | awk -F '\"' '/SEARCH_DIR\(\"=?/ { gsub(/=/,"");
print $2 }' | xargs -0 readlink -m

One way to get a list of standard directories would be:

ld --verbose | grep SEARCH

Our ./configure script makes an effort to strip off standard directories from -L linker switches for a good reason, but fails at doing it for dirs like /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu.

This makes libraries installed in standard dirs take precedence over those installed in wherever is specified at configure time using --with-<package>-lib
