Description

Hi! I just built GST. As the result:

objdump -p .libs/gst-tool | grep RPATH

 RPATH                /usr/lib

It's usually not so bad, but lately is treated as a flaw.

Patching out rpath is something that distros should do, not upstream. See the Fedora packaging guidelines for more information.

--disable-rpath only takes care of libiconv, not of libtool, so you need the second technique described there.
