Well ... yes. If your talking about being a distro packager, "Heck, yes." There's at least two ways I can think off doing this of the cuff.

The first to to add appropriate shell login rc files to /etc/skel that alter LD_LIBRARY_PATH appropriately.

The second is to add it to /etc/profile, and do something similar.

If you're doing things "by hand" you'd have to make this up yourself, sure.

... I guess I don't see the trouble setting up /etc/profile (or other similar methods) when a user logs in. All distributions handle this differently, but with the same end results.

You're right, but he suggested modifying ld.so.conf, to include library paths for EVERY user. Using /etc/profile to set up LD_LIBRARY_PATH is fine, and the Right Way IMHO.

Through a brilliance beyond twilight
we will rise again,
