Problem linking on mac-os

I have a program called l4helper, that links against a libcurl (and lib-cares) that
I have compiled myself.

The library is in my LD_LIBRARY_PATH, and at any rate was never in /usr/local/lib/libcares.2.dylib

Anyone know why it is trying to load that specific location and how to make it look
in ./local/lib or something like that?

ct-mini1:~ lanforge$ ./l4helper --help
dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/lib/libcares.2.dylib
   Referenced from: /Users/lanforge/./l4helper
   Reason: image not found
Abort trap: 6
