[Ndn-interest] Issues installing NFD in Fedora 33

Fedora by default doesn't look for shared libraries under /usr/local. Not sure why, but this was the config for a long time (could be security related issue). Copying into /usr/lib works, but I would say it is not the best way.

A better way is to update your dynamic linker config to include /usr/local/lib64 (and anything else you need). This can be as simple as adding a new file in /etc/ld.so.conf.d/local  with just /usr/local/lib64 line in it; running `sudo ldconfig` afterwards.

If you don't want to modify, you can also set some environment variable, but don't immediately remember which one.

Initially I thought that I have not installed ndn-cxx correctly, so I checked my configuration and everything seemed to be as it should. So I tried copying the ndn-cxx files from "/usr/local/lib64" to "/usr/lib" (libndn-cxx.so.0.7.1, libndn-cxx.so and pkgconfig). Then I ran the waf commands again and everything worked fine.
