Yes, but LD_LIBRARY_PATH is not the answer, it is a damn kludge.

If the necessary libraries aren't in the system's library search path,
the correct answer is to include "-Wl,-rpath,blahblah" (where blahblah
is replaced with the directory where they are) during the link loading
stage of any programs that require them.
