In order to use libraries not installed, but present in another
directory (non standard), you have to use LD_LIBRARY_PATH

Something like: LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/your/custom/library libtool
--mode=execute program_binary

I think this is not related to libtool, but how bash and shared
libraries works though
