Thanks.  Actually, I was wrong, your patch was not missing, but I
didn't see it when I replied (my mailer omitted it, which I didn't
expect) so I thought it was missing.

In any case, I applied it with the following changes.  I used

  LD_CXX='LD_RUN_PATH=$LD_RUN_PATH:$(octlibdir) $(CXX)'

instead of

  LD_CXX="LD_RUN_PATH=$LD_RUN_PATH:$(octlibdir) $CXX"

so that the expansions will take place when make is run instead of
at configure time.

Next time, can you please submit a ChangeLog entry too?
