Sure, we could have the wrappers add the link equivalent of -I-,
assuming there is one, then -L/usr/lib. Or teach DF's linker to
understand -L-/usr/pkg/lib or something

It's far from clear that it's misguided or that rpaths are anything
but a design bug in ELF; however, because pkgsrc is organized to do
things a certain way, we don't want /usr/pkg/lib on the default link
path when building from inside pkgsrc, so that question is entirely

The issue at hand is really whether pkgsrc should/can be adapted to
the platform or not.
