Here's what the manual says in the section discussing the `-b' options:


  Uses Path as the library path when writing the loader section of the
output file. Path  is neither checked for validity nor used when
searching for libraries specified by the
  -l flag. Path overrides any library paths generated when the -L flag
is used.
  If you do not specify any -L flags, or if you specify the nolibpath
option, the  default library path information is written in the loader
section of the output file.
  The default library path information is the value of the LIBPATH
environment variable
  if it is defined, and /usr/lib:/lib, otherwise.


Is that what you're looking for?
