Dear Thomas,

BTW, Mac OS X has no rpath support

I was aware of that (thanks)

Does it mean that on Mac OS X there is no need to run configure with
--disable-rpath, since configure does not use rpath on Mac?

yes (disable-rpath should be the default in any case)

BTW, as far as I able to understand configure, setting

LIB_CREATE='${LIBTOOL} --mode=link ${CC} -rpath ${DESTDIR}${libdir} ..

is not conditional on rpath support being present.

I have a note from last summer that tells me I tried implementing
disable-rpath for the libtool configuration, but found that the
resulting libraries were not installable:

    I noticed that --disable-rpath does not affect the libtool configuration,
    and tried implementing that.  It didn't work (cannot install the ncurses
    library itself):
        installing ../lib/libncurses.la as /tmp/FOO/usr/lib/libncurses.la
        cd ../lib; /usr/bin/libtool --silent --mode=install /usr/bin/install -c 
libncurses.la /tmp/FOO/usr/lib
        /usr/bin/install: cannot stat `.libs/libncurses.lai': No such file or 
        make: *** [install] Error 1

That is, it _might_ be doable, but I didn't get there on the first try.
