According to Brad Walker on 4/24/2008 2:14 AM:
| The code that assigns the RPATH to the linker flags is custom Emacs
| code. Patching _AC_PATH_X_XMKMF's output to check the lib64 directories
| (example: ´╗┐https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=302963 ) sets
| $ac_x_libraries so that the custom code doesn't set the RPATH linker
| flag.

That patch is against emacs' generated configure, and not against the
autoconf sources.

| ´╗┐Here on x86_64 x_libraries should be ''... I believe on x86_64
| platforms _AC_PATH_XMKMF should check /lib64 and /usr/lib64.

Okay, so it looks like you are arguing that _AC_PATH_XMKMF should be
patched, which is indeed an autoconf macro (although emacs won't benefit
from the patch until it upgrades to using the as-yet-unreleased autoconf
2.63, so you will have to continue to carry an emacs-specific patch for
some time).  Would you mind posting a proposed patch ported to the
autoconf sources?
