I've had a terrible time getting FreeBSD's ldconfig look through the
directories I tell it, recursive or not. On Linux it's a simple .conf
directive, but I've yet to find anything but symlink and similar hacks in
FreeBSD. The documented .conf settings don't appear to have an effect.

Unfortunately no, except to keep things in pre-determined system paths.
