Err.  I'm from a Debian and Linux background, which has been doing ELF
for approximately forever.  Did you read the two links Daniel Berrange
posted ?

Your proposed patch would cause, on most ordinary builds, an -rpath to
be supplied pointing at the system directories /usr/lib{,64}.  This
would be wrong.

When you supply options or variable settings to override the
installation directory to one which isn't on the default search path,
you must also supply the the rpath yourself at that point.  If this is
too hard we whould make it easier but aside from that I think no
change should be made.
