The problem here is that -n implies -N which instructs ldconfig not to rebuild the cache. 

Only process directories specified on the command line. Don't process the trusted directories (/lib and /usr/lib) nor those specified in /etc/ Implies -N
Don't rebuild the cache. Unless -X is also specified, links are still updated.

The following files exist in /usr/local/lib:
  • file
  • symlink ->
  • symlink ->
When I call ldconfig with the verbose flag manually after make install (cache is still not updated), it does not seem to detect all of them:

$ ldconfig -v -n /usr/local/lib
/usr/local/lib: ->

In my opinion, ldconfig option -n should not imply -N or at least update the cache according to the changes (added, modified and deleted files).
