I'm not sure I understand this.  Programs are typically not created
differently based on whether they are check_PROGRAMS or bin_PROGRAMS.
Maybe you are thinking of uninstalled libraries which those programs
depend on and which are noinst_LTLIBRARIES thus only generated as
convenience archives?  Here's how you can let them be shared libraries:

libtesthelper_la_LDFLAGS = -rpath /nowhere

The actual path you specify is not important, except that it should not
be world-accessible because the system might try to find files there.

If I have misunderstood your question, the maybe it helps to show a
small example?
