If I understand you correctly, you want to set up the library path for the 
application you start from your IDE. A much cleaner solution than to mess with 
the global scripts and paths is to set up LIBRARY_PATH just for the application 
you start. load_image() has an "environ" argument which you can prepare as you 
need it. If you use fork() and exec*(), there are exec*() versions which take 
such an environment pointer as well.

PS: BTW, topics like this which are not related to the development of the 
operating system itself are better suited for the third party development list 
(cf. [1]).
