Yes, these are the search dirs on Debian. /usr/lib64 and /lib64 are not
among these.

So libtool should be dropping the /usr/lib64 rpath.

IIRC that's it.

Yes, because they configure they toolchain differently. But IIRC it's
not by patching, but detecting what is actually there. Or is there still
some hardcoding there?

Err, yes. But that does not matter: by "libtool script", I mean the one
created at link time, which represents the built binary, but is actually
just a wrapper around the .libs/binary
