I'm not using Linux, but doesn't ldconfig exist there?
On FreeBSD you can do:
$ ldconfig -r|grep sndfile
463:-lsndfile.1 => /usr/local/lib/libsndfile.so.1
So you know what's there. AFAIR in the link.sh script in the build
directory after fpc failed there are hints on where fpc is searching.
After asking ldconfig after what it found you could look further:
$ ls -l /usr/local/lib/libsndfile*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 425514 26 Mai 2005 /usr/local/lib/libsndfile.a
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 15 26 Mai 2005 /usr/local/lib/libsndfile.so -> libsndfile.so.1
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 359904 26 Mai 2005 /usr/local/lib/libsndfile.so.1
(sorry for long lines)
If you set the link a short ldconfig -R rescans the library dirs and it

Try "man ldconfig" and read more about the linux specific switches ...
Hope it helps,
