That's easy; LD_LIBRARY_PATH is parsed just like the current
PKG_CONFIG_PATH, and ld.so.conf is just a list of directories; it can't
get much easier than that.

The list of directories searched can be OS-dependent; extract the relevant
path from whereever it's stored on the system. Detecting the presence
(and utility) of /etc/ld.so.conf should be easy enough.
