removing rpath from libtool

We are using libtool 1.5.6.  How can we disable libtools use of rpath?  It is causing us trouble.  The problem is we are building libraries that are then later shipped and installed on other systems.  We can not control where they get installed since it is a customer's system.

Now what happened was the rpath embedded in our .so's happened to partially match a broken NFS mount on a customers site.  This then caused the system to hang for a long time when trying to start the apps because the system tried to look in the rpath that was not valid.


I really don't see the need for rpath at all, maybe it makes sense on other systems, but we are on Linux & Solaris.

Is there a way to disable this?  I googled a bit but most of the discussions seem to be from around 1999 on the debian mailing list.

Thanks for any info.
