We have are a bit inconsistent on this. Some variables are unset from
the main Makefile, and a bunch of others are checked in
support/dependencies/dependencies.sh. For example, LD_LIBRARY_PATH
which you mentioned get checked in support/dependencies/dependencies.sh.

Looks like a bit of cleanup in this area might be useful.
