My emacs compiled out of ports does look in that directory by default.
In emacs do "ESC-x describe-variable load-path" which tells you where
emacs is looking. Mine is
and as you can see second entry is "/usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp"
Assuming it is missing for you, then you could add something like this
to your .emacs
(set-variable 'load-path (append '("/usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp")
but that sticks it at the end, so anything there won't override
defaults, which is not so good.
Make sure you environment does not set EMACSLOADPATH which would
override compile-time defaults.
