Question about relink_command

*.la file produced by libtool contains relink_command, which allows to relink this library during installation. According to libtool documentation, this is necessary on the systems where the linker always hardcodes paths to dependent libraries into the output. What Linux versions require this? I tried installation without relink_command on Ubuntu and Fedora, and it works. Are there some Linux distributions where relink_command is really necessary?

Also, if library having dependent libraries is relinked, why executables are never relinked?
