Are we installing to /usr/lib64 by default? Or do you have something in your specfile or your system's default that is resetting libdir to /usr/lib64?

FWIW, in the 1.0.2 distribution tarball, I'm not seeing the -rpath argument in the final libtool link. I see it in the almost-final link:

/bin/sh ../libtool --tag=CC --mode=link gcc -std=gnu99 -fvisibility=hidden -I/usr/include/libxml2 -std=gnu99 -fvisibility=hidden -I/home/jsquyres/hwloc-1.0.1/include -no-undefined -version-number 0:1:0 -lxml2 -lz -lm -o -rpath /usr/local/lib topology.lo traversal.lo topology-synthetic.lo bind.lo cpuset.lo misc.lo topology-xml.lo topology-linux.lo topology-x86.lo

But then libtool seems to strip it out:

libtool: link: gcc -shared .libs/topology.o .libs/traversal.o .libs/topology-synthetic.o .libs/bind.o .libs/cpuset.o .libs/misc.o .libs/topology-xml.o .libs/topology-linux.o .libs/topology-x86.o -lxml2 -lz -lm -Wl,-soname -Wl, -o .libs/

Are you seeing something different?

How does one check to see if rpath was applied to the final .libs/ I tried objdump and didn't see anything, but I might be looking in the wrong place:

$ objdump .libs/ -x | grep -i path
000000000000de27 l F .text 000000000000019d hwloc_strdup_mntpath

FWIW, it's not in my RHEL 5.4:

[11:32] svbu-mpi:~/svn/ompi/ompi/mpi/c % more /etc/
[11:32] svbu-mpi:~/svn/ompi/ompi/mpi/c % more /etc/*
[11:32] svbu-mpi:~/svn/ompi/ompi/mpi/c %

This is definitely not a preferred solution; I don't want to get in the business of frobbing a generated libtool script (we do it in Open MPI to work around esoteric bugs and it's awful awful awful).
