I put it in /usr/lib and it seems to work. But you are right. I tyried to move it to /usr/local/lib but it doesn't work there, even after running an ldconfig, so I moved it back. Our package manager does not list it, so it will probably be ok in /usr/lib.
If I can recall to do it, I'll move it to local before I reboot next, there may be a path cache I'm fighting with now.
