To be honest,  I do not understand this request and the discussion.
ctypes.util.find_library(), as dcumented, is supposed to simulate what
the linker does:  find the name of a shared library.  For example,
it returns '' when called as ctypes.util.find_library('c').
AFAIK (and I don't know very much about posix shared libs or linkers)
the linker does not pay attention to (DY)LD_LIBRARY_PATH env var.

dlopen(shared-lib-name) does use this env vars, but this behaviour is
already built into dlopen.
