-R essentially only works by chance. GCC passes all unknown options
silently down to ld. So this depends on two things:
(1) The GCC behavior of passing down -R.
(2) ld supporting -R.

If upstream wants to default to something, it should be
-Wl,-rpath,$path. That's going to work on all ELF platforms and some
non-ELF systems (like AIX).
