To be more concrete:

I suggest adding a configure option "--enable-rpath"
that adds the appropriate LDFLAGS when appropriate for the
build system (e.g. solaris and linux for a start) and
gives notice when the system is unsupported (for rpath).





for what has already been in the sources and has been removed.

By the way: It is not strictly necessary to modify the sources to
create binaries linked with an rpath: By setting an appropriate
"LDFLAGS" environment variable containing an RPATH option before
calling configure, you can use an RPATH option for your install
without modifying the sources, since the configure script picks
up any externally set LDFLAGS and CFLAGS settings! ... :-)

Cheers - Michael
