I have tried chrpath in the past and with it my package fails to build
on some architecture (ARM IIRC).
There is certainly a better way to do it. In my case the rpath was
caused by a library used by my package (the rpath was in the output of
something-config --libs IIRC) so the fix was simple.

I also remember a libtool hack where you need to define a
libtool_is_a_fool variable (search the archive).

My advise : don't use chrpath.
