  Do I need to do a "make install" before doing a "make check" ?
That should not normally be required.

I am at loss explaining why things don't work for you, but one guess is
that your setup somehow causes a different to be found,
instead of the one in ./.libs.

Do you have some environment variable set that causes the linker to
ignore ./.libs/  Do you even have a somewhere, such
as in a system lib directory?
