Ah, I understand.  This is presumably a bug in one of the underlying tools,
then.  Do you run aclocal/autoconf/automake during the build?  If so, any
one of the files pulled in by those tools could have changed.  You can
probably narrow it down by searching through the files they generate to find
out where the rpath is coming from.

libtool has been known to do this in the past (see #170350, for example)
