Right. Debian doesn't want this either.
Some of what I've wanted to do in "make install" to help with this:
* Figure out the right way to run "ldconfig" from "make install"
* Test if the runtime linker will be able to find the library, and if
not print a message about setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH (or
Setting rpath with the option to prevent this might be possible too. But
we can't do this unconditionally.
