I could say that someone specifies a library path maybe knows
what he's trying to achieve....

The user specifies an environment for which configure has
certain expectations of.  One of the expectations is that
latest library revision available in that environment
is to be used and that the header found will match the
latest library revision found.  This, I think, is a
reasonable expectation, one which is rooted in many
years of Unix programming tradition.
