Some docs about this subject:

I discovered this problem when I tried to compile kdelibs, while arts libs are 
located in /usr/kde/3.5/lib and mcopidl fail to run, because in my 
environment LD_LIBRARY_PATH is not set by default. Of course, packagers can 
setup LD_LIBRARY_PATH in his environment (RPATH will remain optional and it 
can be disabled).
