Looks like you guessed right:



  Adds Directory to the list of search directories used for finding
libraries designated
  by the -l (lowercase letter L) flag. The list of directories,
including the standard
  library directories, is also recorded in the output object file loader
section for use
  by the system loader unless you use the -blibpath or -bnolibpath
option. You can
  repeat this flag.


But I don't know how to inject `-bnolibpath' into the pkgsrc
environment. It seems like that's what I want; looked around a bit but
I'm in over my head here.
