Hmm, I am curious what portability is destroyed. :-)

I mean, based on my limited platform experience, gcc supports -R and 
Windows is not using autotools, right? And if you built with the -L 
path, isn't it should be the same for -R?

I can work around this by using LDFLAGS but that may not be as precise 
as this.

Any other suggestions?
