My $0.02 as well; I'm a user who has no problem setting these things on
a system-wide basis, primarily because I've had to do filesystem
reorganizations before that broke those paths that were hard-coded into
the binaries I built. My answers were a mix of modifying the runtime
linker's configuration and symlink farms, and the whole mess would have
been avoided in the first place by simply designating a directory or set
of directories as searchable by the runtime linker, changable as

I've also run into problems with software like this trying to be smarter
than me, hard-coding a path that I neither asked for nor specified
(because the automatic scheme involved caught another version of a
particular library in place, such as the one that came with the system).
As such, I don't have a whole lot of faith in a system that guesses this
for me.

The only real argument I'm hearing here is "do it because someone else
does it". Not incredibly convincing. ;-)

Make it an option, please. Or better yet, just leave it as-is; Joe's
(and your) suggestion of using LDFLAGS to force this is exactly where
this kind of logic ought to be: in the builder's hands.
