yup - but we had a debate on this on apr, and the direct path was preferred.
I think in retrospect that was a bad choice, and that apr should search from
LDPATH_ELT/ and LDPATH_ELT/apr-util-1/ for each ELT
of LD_LIBRARY_PATH (or SHLIB_PATH or LIBPATH or what have you by platform).

Thoughts, folks?
