I couldn't reconstruct which pkg it was exactly, but there was
one which needed such a change to build.
How is the addition os the rpath LDFLAG supposed to work? What
I have seen in depends on a _USE_RPATH variable, where
it is not obvious for me who is supposed to set it.
There are other pkg buildlink files which would need a similar
change: I've just tried to build something using Qt, ie it
includes qt2-libs/ The rpath to the X11 libs
doesn't get set automatically, so the compiled programs fail
if the X11 dependency is not added explicitely.

best regards
