If those libs got installed in /usr/local/lib, your /etc/ld.iso.conf (or
/etc/ld.so.conf.d/) might not be including /usr/local/lib

Lots of distros include botan already, did you try apt-get or yum to
install it? For RHEL/Fedora you need to activate the epel repository
(but then you can also just yum install softhsm)
