I know. In fact, what I really want to do is even more bizarre, because
it's not an absolute path.

On darwin it's possible to define the install name of the library as a
relative path; further, it can be defined relative to the loading
application, as:

-install_name @executable_path/etc.

What I want to be able to do is:


libMy_la_LDFLAGS = -rpath @executable_path/../Frameworks/MyFramework

Ignoring for the moment the issue of relative rpaths, which is easy enough
to fix for this special case, we get to my original query: how best to
override automake's specification of rpath...

Of course, the other route is to add a special new command line option for
libtool, but that seems a little extreme.
