No it doesn't.  Like doh123 said run 'man dyld.'  Mac OS X/Darwin uses it's own C library and kernel, with bits of Free/Net/OpenBSD mixed in.  But more importantly to this discussion, it uses its own dynamic linker - dyld.  LD_LIBRARY_PATH doesn't do anything on OS X.  Saying it does doesn't make it so.  The equivalent environment vars are DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH and DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH.  Again, a quick look at the dyld man page would have told you that.

Grow a clue and stop giving advice until you do.  It's getting old.
