It doesn't on my Debian. The libtool script says:

# Compile-time system search path for libraries.
sys_lib_search_path_spec="/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-linux-gnu/4.7 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu /usr/lib /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu /lib "

while on CentOS 6.3 it says:

sys_lib_search_path_spec="/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.4.6 /usr/lib64 /lib64 "

Not sure that this is the line that matters here, but it shows that
distros didn't patch libtool the same :/

He followed the Fedora wiki advice about patching the libtool script (to
disable rpath and remove LD_RUN_PATH).
