I don't think there's any such problem, at least on GNU/Linux.  See:

  $ ./pre-inst-guile
  guile> (getenv "LTDL_LIBRARY_PATH")

The first directory is the build directory.

Just to make sure, I also ran `pre-inst-guile', typed
"(use-modules (ice-9 i18n))" and attached GDB to it: it shows that the
right `libguile-i18n' is loaded.

If in doubt, can you try similar things on your machine?
