With Gnu LD, you may also be able to hard-code a preferred RPath into the executable file itself using the LD flag like -rpath=/var/www/cgi-lib — you may be able to pass this via the ASDF:MAKE-BUILD :LD-FLAGS … ?

As an alternative, you may be able to set the environment variable
LD_LIBRARY_PATH on Linux (or something similar on your OS) to locate
libraries; e.g. if this is a Linux/Apache combo, in your
<Directory> section, you may be able to add something like this…
SetEnv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /var/www/cgi-lib/
… with the appropriate directory, of course.
