Re: OT: "Private" shared object libraries?

But now I want to mess around with GtkMozEmbed, so I have to register
some of the shared objects but I don't want them in a public area.  I
want them in a non-standard location and explicitly tell programs to
look there.  I don't want programs to just "find" Firefox.

$ /x/b/moz/cur/firefox-bin
/x/b/moz/cur/firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries:
libmozjs.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

All the required .so files are in /x/b/moz/cur.

Why no set LD_LIBRARY_PATH for programs that you want to let
find the libraries?
