for future reference the other way to do it is to put an entry into
/etc/ld.so.conf and run sudo ldconfig to set it for the whole system.
For ubuntu I use packages from the PGDG repo or I build from source.
Having had to apply two patches to production in the past 3 years, I
now just build from source because it's so much easier and faster to
apply patches that way than to either way for the next release or
build my own.
