For information, I am routinely doing a lot of work to disable rpaths
(with glibc) when compiling applications.
As such, I would welcome a feature that makes one independent
of configure-s and Makefile-s which sometimes go to extremes for hardwiring
rpaths into the resulting files.

On the other side, currently I am using uclibc for static linking only
(looking forward to exlicit runtime linker!).

Regards and thanks for your work
