GCC knows exactly where they are, but the runtime linker in
/lib64/ needs to know too.

Even if GCC set LD_LIBRARY_PATH while building itself you'd have had
exactly the same problem after installing GCC when you tried to run
the binaries. That's how shared libs work: if you install them in
non-standard locations it's your job to ensure they can be found at

In this case the solution is to not install them in non-standard locations.
