Well, I mean you can't install the shared library via apt-get install for example, you would need to build it from source, that's why I would like to deploy it together with the application.
The /usr/local/ location is not much important to me, I can install it under /usr/lib/ if it would fix my problem.

According to the content of your mail I think debian-user@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
is a more proper place to ask for help.

Maybe you want to read the manual page ld.so(8)

I don't know what "public repo" mean. If you meant to create debian
package that installs stuff under /usr/local , then there is no any
example from Debian's official archive at all.
