Well, you should never link to these internal things.

But, in RHEL5 there is old cryptsetup 1.0.3 and shared
library is quite problematic to use.
Anyway, please be sure you are using cryptsetup from RHEL 5.8,
(cryptsetup-luks-1.0.3-8) there were important fixes.

For RHEL6 and upwards, you should be able to use
libcryptsetup as normal shared library.

You can find some examples here

Hm. What it means?
(And isn't simple binary wrapper/script simpler?)
