$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="something"
You should know that LD_LIBRARY_PATH was not intended to be used this way. One typical use case for
LD_LIBRARY_PATHis to load a shared library needed by a particular program. This can be dealt with via a simple wrapper:
#!/bin/bash ( LD_LIBRARY_PATH="something" ; /path/to/program )
For an in-depth examination of LD_LIBRARY_PATH, refer to David Barr's article "Why LD_LIBRARY_PATH is bad".
