Re: rpath and libtool == testsuite woes

libtool uses rpath such that an installed library finds its
dependencies in the install tree, and a library in the build tree
finds its dependnecies in the build tree.  The problem is that
libgcc_s.so is not a libtool library, so libtool can't do its magic on
it, since it can't even tell whether the library is in its final
install location.
