Well, if they use pkg-config e.g. to get GTK2, they also get the proper
rpath flags. I thought libtool would handle that as well, but I might be
wrong on that.

It should be noted that the rpath way is the most portable solution,
e.g. most other dynamic linkage schemes have similiar mechanisms.
ldconfig is basically a relict from a.out days.
