I believe that this variable will only resolve libraries which you
depend on (and you need the -dev package in the build dependencies). It
will never find a executable which you need to RUN your program.

I believe this WON't help

Add the missing dependencies manually AND use the variable. (At least
this is what I do in all my packages.
