(semi-) recent patch to lt-main.sh broke stuff

I'm (yes, finally) about to upgrade my distro, so I've been looking around at 
unapplied patches and remembered this one.

A while back there was a commit to lt-main to make it set LD_LIBRARY_PATH.  
This breaks since it sets LD_LIBRARY_PATH to $rpath contains /usr/lib which 
may or may not contain versions of libraries (i.e. Qt) that are different 
from those being used by the KDE install.  In my case I have my 
distro-provided Qt 3.something in /usr/lib and my one used for development 
in /opt/qt-copy.  I can't run binaries built against the latter with the 
former.  Stuff no worky.  Even in the case that they would run it would be 
less than desirable to not have $KDEDIR/lib and $QTDIR/lib take precedence.

I'm attaching the local patch that I have that reverts this -- I'll leave it 
to the admin/ folks to fight out a solution.  :-)

Gambling: It's like a tax on people who don't understand mathematics.
