Description:
This is also a packaging/installing issue.

Trying to execute make test in parallel I made a binary tarball after BUILD/compile-pentium-debug-max
on a box where libmysqlclient.so.15 is installed.
The tarball was expanded in an env with the library of 14th version.

In the end I could not run any test in that env.

Notice further that playing around with LD_LIBRARY_PATH helps with ./mysql-test-run but never
with perl's version.

[interception from #rep]

knielsen andrei: yes perl version is wrong. It sets only LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$glob_basedir/lib. But it also needs libmysql/.libs/ and others

How to repeat:
on site with libmysclient.so.15
make bin-dist

on site with libmysqlclient.so.14

tar xzvf mysql-x.y.z-linux.tar.gz
cd mysql-x.y.z-linux/mysql-test
./mysql-test.run

Suggested fix:
FIX LD_LIBRARY_PATH
