I'm not sure how you want to audit that except by checking that your
scripts have fixed interpreter and executables find all necessary
libraries with empty LD_LIBRARY_PATH. While LD_LIBRARY_PATH is quite
rarely used (unless you really have a fellow developer who like it),
PATH is rather unpredictable.
