Install woes

When installing emboss recently I get a load of errors due to libraries
not found. The main problem is that I have an old version of libz but no
lib gd in my system libraries and EMBOSS looks there first to try to
locate these libraries. I have the correct versions installed elsewhere.

Deleting -lgd -lz -lpng from CFLAGS in the ajax directory Makefile works
but is an ugly solution and not really ideal.

Are there any suggestions for setting the library search path or am I
missing something really obvious?
