Nope. LD_LIBRARY_PATH must be set @ runtime to be picked up.  That's not
what I'm actually looking for.  I'm looking for the appropriate method
to hardlink/rpath the lib -- so that it is correctly linked at runtime,
independent of LD_LIBRARY_PATH being set.

Well, it _kindof_ is when VLC is the only app out of many dozens that I
hardlink/rpath various libs with no problems.  There's something unique
to VLC's code that I've not yet figured out ...
