Make fails because of missing library but I can see it's there, why???

  This always happens to me whenever I'm compiling
third party applications. Make fails because it says
that it cannot find a certain library.. and when I try
to search for that file, I usually finds it. For
example, I'm compiling, nagios-plugins but it fails
with this error messages:

check_ldap.c:31:18: lber.h: No such file or directory
check_ldap.c:32:18: ldap.h: No such file or directory

but when I run:
# find / -name "ldap.h" -print
noc# find / -name "lber.h" -print

See.. it's all there! I'm thinking perhaps there's a
way for me to tell a compiler that the system wide
library files are found in that certain directory.

Any idea??
