This patch provides a couple of tests for staged installations.
These usage cases (where all needed libraries are contained within
the package being compiled) are pretty much what Libtool currently
supports on several systems: GNU/Linux, AIX, HP-UX/IA, Solaris, and
probably more I haven't tested yet.

It fails currently on OpenBSD (patch to follow), HP-UX/PA (not
analyzed yet).

The usage of objdump for checking run paths is to be replaced by a
more portable method eventually (but that is not so urgent: the test
is pretty strong without it).

OK to install?  There will be more tests to this end, these should
be the least problematic.

New tests almost count as "obvious", don't you think? :-)

This is okay, is not portable with objdump, but that can be dealt with later, either by limiting the systems the test is run on, or making the test more portable.
