Maybe /usr/local/lib is not a default library path on your system.
Look in /etc/ld.so.conf to check.

If /usr/local/lib is not in there, you can add it and run
# ldconfig -n /usr/local/lib
afterwards (this scans for new librariers in the specified dir
and adds these to the library cache /etc/ld.so.cache)

Or, you can call pan using the command
$  LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib  pan
(this is bash syntax, and I assume your LD_LIBRARY_PATH is unset)

or creating an alias from this.

This is how it works on Debian, but I'm sure things don't look too
different on RedHat (?).

hope this helps
