Hi Peter,

sorry for the late answer. After pondering several alternatives, I
have decided to drop all uses of --rpath in all versions of ECL. This
change is effective as of now in the CVS tree (Tag: (CVS 2008-03-18

Since ECL now supports standard Unix/Linux paths (i.e. /usr/lib,
/usr/local/lib, etc), this should pose no problem in regular
installations. Other Unix users will have to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to
include the directory where libecl.so resides.
