Thank you. I've decided to put the library in /usr/local/lib, while its header 
files in /usr/local/include/ezproject.
It's strange though /usr/local/lib is in /etc/ (actually in another 
file it includes), and I can build other programs acting much as mine, I have 
difficulty with mine only. I run ldconfig manually and then it works. Now I'm 
releasing my software.

yours sincerely

mylibdir = $(libdir)/ezproject

myincludedir = $(includedir)/ezproject
myinclude_HEADERS = ...

If you put your libraries in a non-standard location, then you'll have 
to add that location to the library search path in one way or another. 
Either of the options you mention will work. One other option is to 
generate and install a pkgconfig description file, then use pkgconfig to 
locate the library.
