I would like to add an RPATH with $ORIGIN (supported on Solaris and
GLIBC platforms), but libtool complains that an absolute path is
needed. A following trivial fix to fixes the problem. The
patch is against the top of the multi-language-branch.

While we are on this topic, how about modifying libtool to add a
$ORIGIN in a program RPATH instead of an hardcoded path if
possible? This case should be trivial when libdir and bindir are
subdirectories of prefix.
