A configure annoyance

It is somewhat annoying that whatever DIR you use
for the library install path 
(   --libdir=DIR)
(or --exec-prefix=DIR/lib)
(or --prefix=DIR/lib)

is what ends up in the 'rpath' with no way to 
specify something else.

It would be really nice to be able 'make install' everything
into some random directory tree for packaging to other systems
w/o having to choose between having a wrong rpath or having it
want to overwrite the production locations on the build machine.
