 So, I realized my mistake and I can use libtool.

the project folder

Can I direct the linker as where to find the library without specifying
the path within the LDADD line of my

Far and away the easiest answer to this question is "start using
particularly if you're already using Automake, since all of the Automake
magic assumes that you're going to use libtool to create that sort of
object.  If you're assuming gcc, you could write rules by hand to use
-shared, or you might be able to hack around Automake by putting -shared
into an appropriate Automake compiler flag variable, but you're really
going behind Automake's back and breaking assumptions.
