I don't think it would.  This modification would be done only when
linking one of Guile's own libraries, so it wouldn't affect searches
for other libraries, and it would be undone after the library was
linked in.

Sounds good.  Making libltdl search the compile-time -rpath
directories would be a good general solution.
