 The autoconf test is broken. It only checks that you can stuff
 arbitrary garbage into the rpath, not that anything will work as
 expected. This will fail, perhaps silently, on any system that doesn't
 have $ORIGIN implemented, which I believe is quite a few of them.
 Please get that fixed in Wine.
 (The kernel issue in NetBSD is that $ORIGIN only gets set for programs
 invoked with an absolute pathname.)
