_LTLIBRARIES and _LIBRARIES are used to *produce* libraries. 

If all you want is to link with a .so file which already exists
(or for which you have supplied your own building rules), you
can use _LDADD:

bin_PROGRAMS = foo
foo_SOURCES = foo.c foo.h
foo_LDADD = pathto/

Alternatively, you can play with the -L and -l linker flags

bin_PROGRAMS = foo
foo_SOURCES = foo.c foo.h
foo_LDADD = -Lpathto -lyours

but this second form won't handle dependencies (in case
pathto/ is built in the same project) automatically.

(All of this remains true for any kind of libraries, e.g. static
libraries or libtool libraries.)
