The patch looks pretty good to me. I would only request that
you add a comment above each definition of the RPATH variable
explaining its purpose. In addition, I think we should change
the absolute pathnames to relative ones so that the executables
can be moved without breaking things. I'm working on an install
target to install the library and the locale utilities (among
other things) in a location specified by the user and it's
important that the executables be movable there (or to any
other directory tree that conforms to the expected structure)
w/o needing to be relinked.
