   If that is correct, perhaps that should be considered a bug in the
   dynamic linker? The Solaris ld.so.1(1) man page says

	The default search paths are the runpath recorded in the object,
	followed by /usr/lib. The runpath is specified when the dynamic
	object is constructed using the -R option to ld(1).
	LD_LIBRARY_PATH can be used to indicate directories to be
	searched before the default directories.

Various systems do this differently.

   To me it makes sense to search any directories in LD_LIBRARY_PATH
   *before* the -rpath directories compiled into the binary.

You're not the only one.  That's why there is a DT_RUNPATH entry in
the new ELF draft.  It will be supported in glibc 2.2, and the next
major release of binutils.
