After install the program:

 sudo make install

When I try to run the program, it can't find the libraries:
hidrd-convert: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

But I can verify the shared libraries is there:

$ find /usr/local/lib/* -name*

I have tested on Ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04:

$ uname -a
Linux hexiongjun-9020 4.4.0-96-generic #119~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Wed Sep 13 08:40:48 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

$uname -a
Linux hexiongjun-vm 4.4.0-53-generic #74-Ubuntu SMP Fri Dec 2 15:59:10 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

When I append the /usr/local/lib to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH env, the program would work fine.

Also, when running the make install, there're many warnings like this:

libtool: finish: PATH="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/snap/bin:/sbin" ldconfig -n /usr/local/lib
Libraries have been installed in:

If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
specify the full pathname of the library, or use the `-LLIBDIR'
flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
   - add LIBDIR to the `LD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable
     during execution
   - add LIBDIR to the `LD_RUN_PATH' environment variable
     during linking
   - use the `-Wl,-rpath -Wl,LIBDIR' linker flag
   - have your system administrator add LIBDIR to `/etc/'

See any operating system documentation about shared libraries for
more information, such as the ld(1) and manual pages.

Have you tried running sudo ldconfig after installing hidrd?
