=>A correct -R option needs to be specified, or set LD_LIBRARY_PATH

May I suggest that you *not* use LD_LIBRARY_PATH? The real purpose of 
LD_LP is to allow a program to pick from multiple shared objects at 
loadtime. It's a bad thing to use this as a general rule because it fails 
for setuid programs. The -R option is clearly the way to go.
