I didn't specifically choose to build the libraries in .lib, that's
just the way automake, libtool and friends work.

'make install' will put the files in /usr/local, so you can fish them
out from there in the future.  The README file says that you should
'make install' after running 'make', and the README.OSX file points
you to the GNU/Linux instructions for building, so I'm not sure how
much clearer I can make that, but I'll see what I can do.
