If using a Linux-based system, I'd suggest ensuring that is 
setup to point to the directory or that the compile has the runtime path 
for the sqlite library.  For example, I have added  "-rpath 
/usr/local/lib -rpath /usr/local/lib/mysql" to my -L parameters for apxs 
to load mySQL external modules dynamically in the past.

Linux-based systems also have an "strace" command that may be used to 
figure out what libraries are missing.
