This should be fixed once libtool 1.4 is released.  I don't have time
to backport the 1.4 updates.

IIRC, this is no longer necessary in libtool 1.3.5; it won't pass
-rpath /dir if /dir is searched by default.

The long term solution appears to be the removal of the canonical

I'll have time to come up with a short term solution within the next
few days.

Please CC me any replies.
