#13373 new enhancement

Relying on LD_LIBRARY_PATH in our start script can cause all sorts of pain (see #13359 for an example). We should take the cleaner approach to compile the binaries that need it with a relative RPATH/RUNPATH and get rid of LD_LIBRARY_PATH. We need to adapt our tests as well to make the pass if a RPATH/RUNPATH with ${ORIGIN} is showing up.

See: #18305 for another pain point with LD_LIBRARY_PATH. I guess fixing this ticket would have prevented the trouble outlined there in the first place.
