This doesn't actually effect the searching of libraries at all (from a
libtool point of view), the only thing this variable is used for inside is to decide whether to RPATH or not.

I deliberately put /usr/X11R6/lib before /usr/local/lib because that's
consistent with the of every Linux distro I could get my
hands on.

It could increase the likely-hood on the basis that the libraries aren't
RPATHed anymore, but that's the same situation as /usr/lib, and I think
on Linux these should be in that game too.

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen?  Are you going round the twist?
