I apparently missed both messages to which you refer; however, commenting
upon the first: I'm unsure what you mean here. -rpath is decided at compile
time, ld.so.conf at runtime. ls.so.conf itself may change, and at compile
time it may not have a complete picture.
I don't know what sort of tweaks RedHat made. Can you enlighten me/us?
