Did you put there a link to the directory or to each individual file?  
Anyway, for easier updates I would create a file "/etc/ld.so.conf.d/ 
sge.conf" and put therein the name of the necessary directory, i.e. "/ 
usr/sge/lib/lx24-x86" or alike and run ldconfig again.

You can check later on the cache with:

ldconfig -p

and grep for the libs in question.
