I think you meant, /etc/ld.so.conf? Anyway, there’s no need to add. But if you’re going to add something, it’s a better practice to add a file in /etc/ld.so.conf.d instead.

It is. Did you check with “ldconfig -v”?

That worked because you have both i386 and x64 RPMs installed. 

As already pointed out, you could have fixed that by using “--with-libdir=lib64”. 

So, if you want to use /usr/lib64, try the following instead:

./configure --with-libdir=lib64 --with-jpeg-dir=/usr/lib64
