I have just tried adding in jpeg2000 support to my usual build by adding 
in the "--enable-libopenjpeg" directive to my configure script and 
ensuring I have libopenjpeg-devel etc installed, but configure fails 
with a "ERROR: libopenjpeg not found"

Poking around I find:-

ldconfig -p | grep openjpeg
         libopenjpeg.so.2 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib64/libopenjpeg.so.2
         libopenjpeg.so (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib64/libopenjpeg.so

and I have:-

Other ffmpeg dependencies such as /usr/include/lame/lame.h are all found 
fine, its only openjpeg that seems to be at issue.

Can somebody with a bit more experience of the intricacies of linking 
point me in the right direction please?
