From context I imagine this is the same issue (order of evaluation,
where RPATH is evaluated before LD_LIBRARY_PATH).
I wonder if ld supports --enable-new-dtags which is how other OSes with
this issue have worked around it (call it DT_RUNPATH for the sensible
behaviour instead of DT_RPATH, to avoid breaking old binaries).
