This means that the linker cannot find at run-time.
This usually happens when you are using compilers that are _not_ found
in /usr/bin and the directories with the libraries are not located by
your linker (ld).

The typical solution is to find where these libraries are located and
add them to LD_LIBRARY_PATH.  In bash, this would be something like:

swails.Batman ~ $ locate

swails.Batman ~ $ export

You will want to put the latter command into your .bashrc file so it
appears every time you log in. [1]


[1] An alternative is to modify the configuration file for the ld loader
(on my machine it is /etc/ via configurable files
in /etc/ Using LD_LIBRARY_PATH is easier and safer if
you're not sure what you're doing.
