Its not portable, first of all -Wl is gcc-ism.

gnu ld accepts this:
-Wl,-rpath,/path1 -Wl,-rpath,/path2

with osf/1 (dux (tru64)) ld accepts this

Using the gnu invocation with a osf/1 results in the equivalent of

and that will make you unhappy.

I guess krb5-config should tell you the runtime link-editor paths somehow,
but using -Wl, syntax is probably wrong.

Now, if you had used libfool, it would have picked up the .la files, saw
the runtime path included in the file, and automagicly added them to the
link command. But then, you all seem to hate libtool so, I wont propose
