If you are adding an rpath to a non-default directory, there is a 
reason for it; like /usr/lib/ocaml-whatever/ .

However, adding rpath to /usr/lib is meaningless, because /usr/lib
is in the standard search path.

So, for cases where rpath to /usr/lib is specified you should probably
look at removing the rpath.
For cases where there are specific reasons to do so (for example,
hiding ocaml related libraries in a subdirectory of /usr/lib/),
then rpath should be kept.
