You'll need to run the python interpreter with the "right" env vars set. For Mac OS X, env DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/uninstalled/library python foo, for linux LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/uninstalled/library python etc..

Ah. Thanks -- that worked. I didn't think that would work when -rpath was used -- I guess I should have checked :)

Libtool usually generates a wrapper script for uninstalled programs,
unfortunately, it can not do so for python or other interpreters.

I see. But is there any support functionality for this sort of thing? Any way of finding a platform-independent (sort of) environment variable, for example?

It seems a bit "icky" to use Autotools, and then to slap on an if statement to choose between DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH... (I guess this might be in the docs, though. I'll have another look there.)
