No, but then I haven't installed libguestfs to /usr/local/.

On my Debian systems, /etc/ld.so.conf.d/libc.conf contains a single
line, /usr/local/lib -- this means that the dynamic linker will look
there (among other places) for shared libraries.

If the library is installed by hand, one still needs to run ldconfig (as
root), though because it uses some sort of caching mechanism. The
library packages built for Debian make sure that ldconfig is run
automatically on installation.
