A few suggestions:

1) Make sure that is in /usr/local/cuda-5.5/lib64.

2) Make sure /usr/local/cuda-5.5/lib64 is in LD_LIBRARY_PATH ("echo
$LD_LIBRARY_PATH" will tell you what that environment variable is). If
you did not start a new shell or source your .bashrc after adding that
line to your .bashrc file, then your environment will not have been
loaded and you will still get this error.

3) Try adding /usr/local/cuda-5.5/lib to LD_LIBRARY_PATH in addition to
the lib64 directory.

Good luck,
