First, thanks for your answers !

Right, I'm using a Mandriva 2006.0, but /usr/X11R6/lib is already in my /etc/ld.so.conf. Correct me if i'm wrong, but ld.conf.so is used during runtime, not during compilation ?
Using "strings /usr/bin/ld", I don't see any reference to /usr/X11R6/lib, that's probably the problem.

The job of configure script is not to detect such things and add suitable -L arguments ?

That means that no one can use "vanilla" libjpeg and libode without being flooded by warnings ? :)
