Samba janitorial issue: on Solaris

Most samba 3.2 and 4.0 commands depend on, so on Solaris,
it is desirable to 
- set LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/lib:/usr/lib:/usr/local/samba/lib for each command,
- set it globally with crle -u -l /usr/local/samba/lib
- place it in the regular search path
- link the commands with ld -R /lib:/usr/lib:/usr/local/samba/lib
  (note: this is not gcc's -R option!)

ld -R is the recommended approach for applications on Solaris.
The LD_LIBRARY_PATH is the usual workaround (uck!)

Considering the discussions of shared libraries in this list, I suspect 
setting -R is desirable and applicable to all other ELF-based systems,
and might be tried in the simple-Makefile case...

Who can confirm/deny this?
