I suspect that this involves changing the ill-conceived behaviour around
-R and -rpath, as it mentions in its README below?

- `-rpath` argument values are passed to the compiler and linker as needed only;
  `-rpath` is often [mis]used by libtool to add redundant paths to a program's
  linker search path. When using slibtool, `-rpath` argument values are only
  forwarded to the compiler and linker when pointing to non-default linker
  directories, and are accordingly filtered out when pointing to default
  library locations (i.e. `/usr/lib`, `/lib`, and so on).

- no-ops
    - `-R`, which adds a path to the generated program's run-time search path;
      this switch is currently not needed, and is accordingly ignored.
