Have you considered writing an autoconf macro to implement this? I imagine that 
would lower the 
barrier to adoption of this feature. I believe libtool may do the rpath stuff, 
but it's the least 
commonly used of the autotools; having a simple encaspulation of the 
portability knowledge 
for use in any autoconf script would be nice.
