The library is not in your path. You have to set the
LD_LIBRARY_PATH before you run afterstep. For me it
is, for example, done in my .xsession:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/albert/local/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

where /home/albert/local/lib contains all the
locally installed libraries. You might need
to add /usr/local/lib or some such to it.
