Hmm, I have not checked the Makefiles, but if LD_LIBRARY_PATH has to be
set during a build to access newly-built uninstalled libraries, then I am
fairly sure `libtool --mode=execute' should be used instead. I presume
this is a piece of legacy setup, like quite a lot of bits scattered
through Makefiles, but since we have got libtool in place now, why not
actually make use of it?
