[sf-perl] Setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH

Hello All,
Unix admins here are not happy about updating the .profile of the
production account to add two additional entries to LD_LIBRARY_PATH
environment variable.  So I am having to figure out an alternative
solution in setting this environment dynamically during program run.  I
have tried setting it at the beginning of the program and I have tried
putting it in the BEGIN block with no luck.  I have searched the
Internet and found a lot of discussion but did not find any solution.
According to Tim Bunce's posting, LD_LIBRARY_PATH must be set before the
process starts.
Shall I just go Tim's advise and have the admins change the .profile or
does someone have a solution to help with this problem?
Thanking you in advance.
