Re: how to install library in a specific directory?

Why don't I need to run ldconfig manually after installing other official 
softwares, like osip2? I tried "ldconfig -p" and saw the library was aware of, 
i.e., listed, before running "ldconfig". But linkage could not find the library 

And can I ask another question? I want to build some source code files into 
this library and need to distribute some other files, too. But EXTRA_DIST in does not work as below,
libezcommon_la_SOURCES = ezcommon.cpp tinystr.cpp ...
EXTRA_DIST = tinyxml.txt ezcommon.rc ...

If I write only one file in libezcommon_la_SOURCES, while adding others to 
EXTRA_DIST and others' .o to libezcommon_la_LIBADD, it works. I don't know why.

Thanks for your patience.
