I've usually used LD_RUN_PATH and left it up to the linker to figure
out what to do, rather than trusting whatever compiler I'm working with.
That, or use libtool if I'm only working in C.

But the users here aren't keen on either of those solutions.  Can't really
blame them for avoiding the environment variable method, but they just
won't listen to me when I tell them that in my (correct) opinion, the
Autotools are far better than what they're using.  :-)
