When I tested this on head I did the same and didn't get a crash,
and I don't set WRKDIRPREFIX on that installation, so at least
it can't be that alone.

 I just did

	LD_LIBRARY_PATH="work/fake/usr/local/lib" ldd work/fake/usr/local/lib/vlc/vlc-cache-gen

and got:

work/fake/usr/local/lib/vlc/vlc-cache-gen: => work/fake/usr/local/lib/ (0x800647000) => work/fake/usr/local/lib/ (0x80075f000) => /usr/local/lib/ (0x80093d000) => /lib/ (0x800a8b000) => /usr/local/lib/ (0x800ba3000) => /usr/local/lib/ (0x800cac000) => /lib/ (0x800ea6000) => /lib/ (0x800fc5000)

so it's not picking up wrong libs either...  I guess unless someone
can figure out the real cause and a proper fix we'll have to add
a note to UPDATING to the effect "if your vlc build dies try removing
the old version first."
