The other problem is IMHO that lt-pacman will use the system-wide
libalpm, which is not what you want when you use make check.

If you really want such a hack, then you should set LD_LIBRARY_PATH
correctly, but what about just using dolt from
http://gitweb.freedesktop.org/?p=dolt.git;a=summary ?

IIRC it worked fine with pacman-g2, so it'll be OK with pacman as well,
I guess.
