This is another irksome thing about libtool and -rpath. Test programs,
even if they are marked noinst, use -rpath, and when they are run using
the installed version instead of the newly built one. Which is annoying,
since the whole point of test programs is to make sure the library is
working *before* you install it.

So maybe we should have an explicit -no-rpath switch to libtool to fix
