valide does not respect LD_LIBRARY_PATH?

Bug Description

Operating system: Ubuntu 10.04 with vala-team ppa
Vala version: 0.9.7
Valide version (or svn revision): svn HEAD (0.8)

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. configure and compile, and install valide to /usr/local
export the LD_LIBRARY_PATH '/usr/local/lib' to your session and start valide, it works normal.

2.load valide as project, compile it INSIDE valide and start it, the executed program uses the system (in this case /usr/local/lib) lib, and NOT the _INSTALL_/lib/ library

3. now change some small code in libvalide (e.g. in libvalide/vapi/plugin-manager.vala) and run it from within the IDE.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I expect that the executed program uses the library that is set in the project options.
Instead the executed valide uses the system library path.

Don't know how valide sets the LD_LIBRARY_PATH in the execution environment.
But could it be a solution to set './_install_/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH' instead of '$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:./_install_/lib'
then the first lib found is the local.

changing the positions doesn't help either.
if I patch valide to print the environment, it prints out two LD_LIBRARY_PATHs, one after another:


so the second one is the right, and should be used - it is overwriting the original one. But it has no effect.

Now you can use shell replacement:

sorry, not working here.
The code looks better (hashtable), but if I set *any* environment variable in *any* project - the program does not execute:

(Valatest:1571): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0.0

But valaide now uses the right library code.
