Hmm, that's correct. We do pass in the install location of a library
using -rpath, may be we can a similar flag for a program. This is very
convenient for relocatable packages. 

I am not sure if it's worth the effort to handle this in libtool, it's
easy enough to add it manually as long as libtool doesn't complain
about $ORIGIN in the RPATH.
