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?
