It should be taken care of automatically by the operating system.  It's
not the task of PostgreSQL to tell your operating system how to find
shared libraries, or to override its decisions.  We can only tell you when
something is (probably) wrong.

IMHO, the setup that the link editor can find a library but the run time
linker cannot is simply broken, but the choice how to fix it is yours.
