ld has a hard time finding development symlinks in the versioned directories

Bug Description

The packages install the driver libraries, including symlinks intended for the dynamic linker, to versioned directories (e.g. /usr/lib/nvidia-390). The dynamic loader is configured to search these directories via /etc/ld.so.conf.d; however, this configuration doesn't affect the dynamic linker, which won't find the NVIDIA driver libraries unless the appropriate -L flag is set.

For example, it would be nice to be able to link an application that uses libnvcuvid.so without having to set e.g. -L/usr/lib/nvidia-390 on the command line, since doing so would require finding out the right driver version number to set in the -L parameter.
