configure script can't find a library

I installed libxml2 library from source and it installed itself in

i added /usr/local/lib to and ran a ldconfig ( as root )

then i tried to compile tablix-0.0.3 wich does require the installed version
of libxml2

i ran ./configure ( as normal user ) and i get the following error

checking for xml2-config... (cached) no
checking for libxml - version >= 2.4.3... no
*** The xml2-config script installed by LIBXML could not be found
*** If libxml was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the XML2_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to xml2-config.

so nothing of the new library is found. What can i try next?

Im sure you have done this, but try the obvious. Follow the instructions kicked out when the configure failed (make sure your path is set correctly). Use the find command to locate the library.
# 3  
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:/lib:/usr/lib
The result of this variable is the "configure" script will search the /usr/local/lib directory first.
