What I need from libtool is to let me do one of these things in
the wrapper it creates for uninstalled binaries.

This is an interesting idea. GraphicsMagick has a similar problem so a shell script is configured which is used to execute the programs with additional environment variables. This approach only works if the user remembers to use the script. So it would indeed be useful if libtool's wrapper could cache and replay user-supplied environment variables.
