I agree with the dependency on libsubdir, but concerning ld.so.conf,
that's simply not true; it would only force all C++ developers to do
on Linux what's necessary on other systems using shared libs anyway
LD_RUN_PATH=`gcc --print-file-name=` g++ ... <your linker args>
should be sufficient.
Jeff, I believe you should give H.J.'s patch a chance and put it into
the release branch; though I've been using my libsubdir solution since
a long time now, I guess his patch would better fit the "normal Linux
user" ;-) and BTW, yes, it does work, I've checked it on Linux and
Solaris so far.
