Is cabal option --extra-lib-dirs working?

Ahn, Ki Yung
I had some problem with --extra-lib-dirs option in cabal-install.

I've been trying installing bindings-yices package on hackage.  Since
yices may be installed in non-standard location, such as under your own
home directory, one may have to use --extra-include-dirs and
--extra-lib-dirs option.  --extra-include-dirs work well and locates the
 header for the yices C binding, but --extra-lib-dirs option does not
seem to work well.

Would this be a cabal-install bug, or some package misconfiguration?

cabal: Missing dependency on a foreign library:
* Missing header file: yices_c.h
* Missing C library: yices
This problem can usually be solved by installing the system package that
provides this library (you may need the "-dev" version). If the library is
already installed but in a non-standard location then you can use the flags
--extra-include-dirs= and --extra-lib-dirs= to specify where it is.
