you might want to read up on how to compile things using automake (the 
configure/make/make install-dance).

do a ./configure --help to see if you can explicitly specify library and 
header locations and then configure with those explicitly set. if not then 
you might also be able to set some environment variables (CFLAGS and 
LDFLAGS) to point to the correct directories.
