Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Problem is that sometimes modules do not find a required library unless $LD_LIBRARY_PATH is set before run of perl(1). I could pollute environment, use a warpper shell script to get around it, or properly use ldconfig to cache the paths.

Instead of and/or in addition to all of those things, is it not possible to set the value of LD_LIBRARY_PATH in perl while compiling it? I will accept that addition of libraries in some other path may require a recompilation.

Usage would be on FreeBSD, and possibly on GNU/Linux (CentOS 6).
