The specific -- but not helpful -- answer is that you have to teach
configure about non-standard (on Linux) locations like /usr/pkg/lib.
I've never found that easy.  On the other hand, quite often the easiest
way to do something like that is to create a package for zarafa.  Yes,
there's a learning curve, but once you learn it you can create other
packages, and of course you can send-pr the stuff you've created and
someone will (probably) commit it.
