Thank you. I've decided to put the library in /usr/local/lib, while its header

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.

ldconfig updates the library cache. the /etc/ file is the file used by ldconfig to determine which directories to scan for libraries. When you add a new library to one of the directories in /etc/, then you need to run ldconfig to ensure that the cache is aware of that new library.
