It's a tradeoff. It is easier to install and use multiple builds of
gcj/libgcj if I compile with -rpath so I am not overriding
LD_LIBRARY_PATH each time. But my -rpath directory is probably
meaningless to anyone else who wants to run one of my gcj-compiled
It is also a simple matter to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH at login, or (on
Linux) edit my /etc/ld.so.conf. It also seems likely that standard
Linux distributions will eventually install libgcj.so in a system
directory. We probably should have a FAQ entry for this.
That said, I have no strong opinions one way or the other.
