I've finally tracked this one down, turns out it's nowhere near the code
I thought it'd be in -- instead Libtool's just discarding -L parameters
during prog,link.

I've fixed that (patch mailed to -patches), and this makes prog mode
behave the same as lib mode now, it'll pass:

        -L/opt/libxml/lib -lxml2

to the compiler (instead of /usr/lib/libxml2.so for the latter arg).

I've also decided that the lack of an rpath is actually right for
non-libtool libraries, we should only hardcode paths of libtool
libraries because we have more control over those.

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen?  Are you going round the twist?
