For Tru64, you just need to bunch the -R arguments together into a
single such argument, using ":" as the path separator. The Mercury
linker does this on Tru64, converting multiple -R options passed to the
Mercury linker into a single -rpath option to pass to Tru64 linker.
Are HP-UX or AIX any more difficult?
