If it's a packaged library, it will be in /usr/lib/ or a directory
beneath that.

Check configure.ac and ./configure --help to see what is auto-enabled
and what needs to be explicitly found or skipped. 

Compare the output of the configure stage inside and outside the
chroot. Check for tests that are enabled outside the chroot but
disabled inside it.

When you find it, ensure you document exactly why the problem occurred
and how you fixed it in debian/changelog.
