No, the test fails; which is correct, for plain Autoconf
usage, when a library is not recognised. IMHO the best
thing to do is to have this test fail if it does not find
the correct library and document the way of selecting a
different "lib" directory (through the LDFLAGS variable on
the command line of "configure").

Also, I noticed that there is no test for the presence of
the header file.
