LD_LIBRARY_PATH only affects the dynamic linker and its search path
when executing a program. You will need this when you execude tmux afterwards.

With --prefix=... you tell the configure script where you wanna install the 
files. Now you have to tell the gcc where to search for the 
library/includes. So try to set CFLAGS="-I $HOME/include -L $HOME/lib"
