[LAD] question on dynamic linking

I am having a discussion on the supercollider front about what is the proper 
way for dynamic linking.

as far as I know, you use ldconfig and have the library location that programs 
dynamically link to defined in /etc/ld.so.conf

but what is supposed to happen if the user just installs the program to a 
directory in his home directory?
how should the dynamic linking be defined?

esp. if the user does not have the root rights to change anything 
in /etc/ld.so.conf or to run ldconfig.

I did not find anything quick on the net about this, so maybe one of you can 
enlighten me what is the "proper" way of dealing with this.
