If -l(***) is in /path/to/folder before compiling do:-

export LDFLAGS='-L/path/to/folder'

To run an application that needs to link to a shared library "-l(***)" 
in some non-standard location /path/to/folder

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/folder

You should only need to do these things if you've installed stuff in an 
unusual place (such as your home folder). If you've installed things in 
/lib or /usr/lib then ld should find them automatically.
