In case you do need to keep two versions of a library (e.g. if they
are not backward compatible, and different apps want different library
versions), you can use LD_LIBRARY_PATH and PKG_CONFIG_PATH to pick the
right one when compiling/running your applications.

So, in your specific case, you could have set :
$> export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
$>export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH

hope that helps..
