LD_LIBRARY_PATH is checked at runtime for dynamic libraries. It has 
nothing to do with compilation per se. Are libatlas and ATLAS' libblas 
and liblapack all in /usr/local/lib ? Are they dynamically link at all? 
or are they statically linked (i.e. are they .so libraries or .a)?

You can also check the link line from the compilation of 
optimize/_lbfgsb and make sure that it links to all of the ATLAS libraries.
