You can create a static library of taglib, and make sure your
application is linking against that, instead of a dynamic/shared
version of taglib which you probably have inside /usr/local/lib. This
will build the library into your application. When you compile taglib,
confligure will have some options for ensuring a static lib is built.

Alternatively you can link against a dynamic/shared version of taglib
and provide it alongside your application for when it is run on a
different machine.
