All of the .rpm based distros that I use recommend putting
./configure --libdir=%_libdir .....

in the .spec file. %_libdir is is /usr/lib or /usr/lib64

Since you want to use /usr/local you should write

./configure --libdir=/usr/local/%_lib

for rpm based distros.

The Debian based distros that I have used don't need anything done
because /usr/lib works for 64bit.
