Not at all. Instead, create m4 macros that search for the libraries
somehow and place them in ${datadir}/aclocal. A common search method is to
create small scripts (from .in files) that echo the necessary paths and
place them in ${bindir}, as @address@hidden (For C++, this is the only
rational method with the currently released autoconf). See for example the
gtk packages, they do a very good job here.

Anyone wishing to use your library just needs to use the macros you
provided to get the necessary compiler flags.
