If you're using tcsh try something like:

setenv DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH /path/to/library/

If you're using bash/sh try:

export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/library/

It might be easiest if you create a simple shell script that sets it
and then just runs the client.  I've been considering bundling such a
shell script with the mac client just to simplify these steps.
