I think the bug here is that configure assumes the admin has added all
possible library directories to the RTLD path, so it does not specify an
RPATH at all. However if (like me) you are passing a specific path to
configure then there is probably a good reason you aren't using the usual
system library locations, so you need -R as well as -L and -I.
