Dear Bash developers,

I am trying to build Bash for a relatively closed environment where I don't want the Bash executable to link with the system's libreadline and libncursesw, but my own installation of these libraries.

However, even when I configure bash with `--enable-rpath', and add `-Wl,-rpath-link=$my_install/lib' to LDFLAGS, the bash executable doesn't have the absolute address of these libraries in it.

As a result, the only way I can run my installation of Bash is to explicitly add `$my_install/lib' to LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

I use the same recipe (to build Bash) for many other low-level GNU programs, but I don't have this problem for any other executable (they all contain the absolute address of the libraries they link with).

I wanted to see if you have any recommendations to fix this problem.

Thank you very much,
