AFAIK LD_LIBRARY_PATH is unset in ubuntu, since the libraries are all
where they should be:) If you install libraries in non-default
directories (which is avoidable by using stow...) you must indeed set
LD_LIBRARY_PATH. You may do it either on the spot, just before launching
the command either 
~$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=somedir
~$ command
Or (better IMHO) as
~$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=somedir command
Or you could set up  the variable in your login script, adding
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=somedir
to ~/.bash_profile
If you want the settings to be system wide, add the above line in
 /etc/sysprofile.d/00Standard.bash
As the same file points out:
~$ cat  /etc/sysprofile.d/00Standard.bash
# This here is for any settings you want.  If the contents
# become too abundant consider separating them into single 
# modules.  Please do read "/usr/share/doc/sysprofile/README.usage"
# for further information.  Sample modules can be found in the 
# samples subdirectory "/usr/share/doc/sysprofile/examples/".

Enjoy
