No, there is no mis-detection.  The shared libraries in the build 
directory are linked in such a way that (libtool-linked) uninstalled 
executables can be run that are linked against the (libtool-linked) 
uninstalled shared libraries.  This is done by embedding the build 
directory into the runtime library search paths for all of the 
libtool-linked objects.  When we install the shared libraries and any 
applications linked against them, they must be relinked to have the 
correct runtime library search path.

This is normal libtool behavior.
