Hi Jorge,
first of all, your ldconfig configuration seems ok. The error about 
'liblibvlc-control.so' is normal, since JNA first attempts to load 
libvlc-control.so, then it does not find it and adds the 'lib' prefix to 
catch common errors. This said, try to run the application with 
-Djna.library.path instead of -Djava.library.path .

The other strange thing is it seems you have the libjvlc in your libs, 
which is now no longer generated for java bindings.
