What applications could not find shared libraries?

This varies widely from one platform to the next. I will have to assume
you are using linux.
(0) Find out which directories contain newly installed shared libs.
If you do not have root on the machine you are using, add these dirs
to the environment variable LD_LIBARY_LOAD_PATH , and stop here.
(1) $man ldconfig
(2) Check your /etc/ld.so.conf . If these directories are not in your
/etc/ld.so.conf, add them to /etc/ld.so.conf, one directory per
line. (You must edit /etc/ld.so.conf as root.)
by the way, I do not really know what your problem is; you should re-read
the installation instructions for gcc, and see if you missed something.
