This would be good way of testing because no installation is needed but
how can I solve that library path problem?

Create an empty folder
Copy in it :
 * The app you want to test
 * a subfolder named "lib"
* in the "lib" folder, any needed library (locale, icu, ...) with the proper name requested by the application.

Then it will load the libs from this folder and you will not have any problems. You also avoid risks of propagating a bad/incompatible library to other apps, as when altering system paths. You could be left with a completely broken system...
