It's fine, insofar that NetBSD ld(1) doesn't automatically create an rpath
from a -L option.  If any base system libraries are interdependent (was
linked with -lfoo), then it may need -rpath-link at link time, but most of
the base libraries have to be specified explicitly so this should be OK.

: Also note, that symlinks from $DESTDIR/usr/lib are absolute symlinks to
: /lib, which is probably now what you wnat on your host machine.

Eh!?  I guess I haven't paid much attention to -current lately.  All of
/usr/lib moved to /lib?  (If so, then the symlink should probably be
"../lib", not "/lib".)
