I suspect the proper solution is to add a rpath or runpath to the
binaries using these libraries, to tell the dynamic linker about the
extra library path.  This can be done during the linker stage using
-Wl,-rpath,/opt/pkts .  You can also change the rpath/runpath using
chrpath, if the end result is not the way you want it.

Happy hacking,
