Solaris is an ELF system.  The library search path is supposed to be in
the headers of the binary.  It gets put there by using the proper LDFLAGS
during the compile time link.

[emacs-21.3]$ echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH $LD_RUN_PATH

[emacs-21.3]$ ldd src/emacs-21.3.1 =>    /usr/dt/lib/ =>   /usr/lib/ =>    /usr/openwin/lib/ =>   /usr/openwin/lib/ =>    /usr/openwin/lib/ =>    /usr/openwin/lib/ =>   /usr/openwin/lib/ =>  /usr/openwin/lib/ =>  /usr/sfw/lib/ =>         /usr/sfw/lib/ =>   /usr/sfw/lib/ =>     /usr/lib/ =>     /usr/lib/ =>   /usr/openwin/lib/ =>   /usr/openwin/lib/ =>        /usr/lib/ =>   /usr/lib/ =>         /usr/lib/ =>        /usr/lib/ =>     /usr/lib/ =>    /usr/lib/ =>    /usr/lib/

Go back and re-read my previous post in the other branch of this thread.

Completely unnecessary.  Learn something about the OS before posting such

It merely confuses and confounds the misimpressions you Linux users have
about UNIX.
