This is a noble effort you're undertaking, but this bug is a bit misplaced.
The problem lies in libtool (and it's not just FreeBSD-specific).  Libtool
will add all -L directories to RPATH (which is wrong IMHO).  Libtool should
be patched to honor its own hardcode_minus_L variable, and not hardcode
those paths if not requested.  Please take this up with the libtool developers.
If you do get a patch that can be applied to FreeBSD, please send it to our
libtool maintainer, ade.  Thanks.
