Yes.  I tried to do that once and just lost interest before getting it working 
(didn't take long).  Really though, <rant> I find it annoying to install a 
library that is statically linked by only one application into my lib 
directories.  There's already way too much useless crapola and 
redundancy-because-everyone-wants-to-start-their-own-project-these-days in the 
typical linux distro's library directory(ies) these days.</rant>

Which is why I have them installing in a non-default prefix location.  Just a 
thought... :-)
