Most likely :

you should run ldconfig (so that the stupid thing will
pick up the /usr/local/lib) 


ldd memcached 
ldd memcached

To see what I mean.

If you have no root access (I suppose that you, do but
who knows) - you can wrap memcached in 

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib
memcached $*


PS. man ldconfig
PPS. have a nice weekend.
