floCha is on a distinguished road

I am running into a compilation issue on OF2206/WSL2/Ubuntu22.04 that I have dragging for now couple days. I get the following error when I tried to compile a solver with wmake (any solver, even unmodified, e.g., laplacianFoam):
/usr/bin/ld: warning:, needed by /usr/lib/openfoam/openfoam2206/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/lib/, not found (try using -rpath or -rpath-link)
It is followed by more library files missing (,, etc.) generating more errors down the line. The complete terminal log is attached.

In my understanding, OF checks the library by using the env. variable $LD_LIBRARY_PATH. Once echoed, I get:
I checked these paths and indeed, the library files mentioned in the warnings are in their respective folders, esp. the one marked in red.

So, the library files exist, and the path indicates them correctly. Is there anything else I should check to find out what is wrong?

Details about the build.
I am running OF 2206 installed by following the instruction from for ubuntu. It is installed on WSL2 with Win.11. OpenFoam works and I run some tutorial codes, simpleFoam with meshing/running/post-processing, and everything is ok. I tried different build like OpenFoam v10 (from and get the same issue.
Strange quirk, to compile my file, I use the following command
sudo -E env "PATH=$PATH" wmake
Otherwise, wmake is not recognized when used alone with sudo.
Openfoam is currently installed in,
and the solver is compiled directly from this openfoam directory (/openfoam2206/applications/solvers/basic/laplacianFoam). I tried to compile in my home directory but same error.

Thank you,
