I'm not talking about application installed in non-default location.
I'm talking about uninstalled application.

There is no significant difference !

If its a regression/unit test the correct application environment has
to be set in Makefile{|.in|.am} and the program/library will inherit it.

No, it's not a test suite.  It's a real, legitimate application the user
has built.  Now he wants to run it before doing "make install".

And if application don't read environment, next request is libtool wrapper script to pass arguments to application command line.

The whole idea is libtool overkill.
