Dear Thomas,

since you applied the following change

Rather than copying the build-tree's libraries, link the shared
 objects into the install directory.

I have considered making that detail an option (will look/see how to do this). Making it optional would let me make rpath work properly, but
let people build the older configuration...

a problem surfaced on Mac OS X (whith --disable-libtool, --enable-shared), installed libraries are linked against libraries in build locations,
not instal locations (as described at

thanks - will see

I suspect that DESTDIR in the following configure line breaks things.

MK_SHARED_LIB='${CC} ${CFLAGS} -dynamiclib -install_name ${DESTDIR}${libdir}/`basename address@hidden -compatibility_version ${ABI_VERSION} -current_version ${ABI_VERSION} -o $@'

Since DESTDIR sets temporary location where things are installed before
being moved to a proper place by package management system, there is
no reason to include DESTDIR in their install_names (Mac OS analog of rpath).

    Sincerely, Michail
