In my own experience, FreeBSD has burned me many times in this way.

Essentially, if I set LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib, then the FreeBSD
runtime linker (rld) causes my in-tree binaries to use the *installed*
svn libraries. If this environment variable is unset, then the
in-tree binaries use the in-tree libraries. It took me forever to
figure this out.

Just a data point there.
