That LT_SYS_LIBRARY_PATH concept sounds good, thanks!

That makes sense.  Ideally, we could make the variable ./configure time
sensitive and also sensitive to environment.  Something like
: ${LT_SYS_LIBRARY_PATH="/configure/time/detected/LT_SYS_LIBRARY_PATH"}?

Cowardly, I know.., thats not what I initially said, sorry.  But more I
read the history of this issue, more unsure I'm.  I'm not 100% against
that so don't take me too seriously:

It has been proven it works for Fedora and it does not break Debian [1]
(though that patch does not follow debian's policy).  On the other hand,
taking into account there can be /usr/lib32-like GNU/Linux distributions..
or just user setups..

If there are reasons to not apply this unconditionally at least for
GNU/Linux (and there surely are), I'm not sure whether we shouldn't
rather avoid such 'linux*' && subset(64-bit arches) only conditions
(because reasons for not to do it must be the same).  And that can result
in more tricky debugging scenarios.
