Well, I kinda give up... but narrowed it to the following... if
LD_LIBRARY_PATH contains absolute directory then it fails... libtool
uses absolute path.

In strace I could not find anything strange, it searches the shared
libraries absolute or relative as expected.

Many other tests that are expected to fail actually failed because of
this a false positive... we do not check for the valgrind exit code

I found those[1][2][3] and more.
Added this to suppression at [4] please consider.
