Do you mean that even if the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH is
defined, it gets overridden by hardcoded rpath?
Or only that default lookup paths like /lib and /usr/lib gets overridden
by rpath value (when LD_LIBRARY_PATH is *not* defined)?
If it is the first, then please update the Debian wiki page, and also
drop a note about it to jurij at debian.org (I see that he is not
subscribed to updates to that wiki page).

As I understand it, rpath has its sane uses, it is not a complete evil.
Only for packaging as part of Debian (and derivatives) is it a
Also, if I understand it correctly, the issue here is only with Ubuntu
libraries being compiled with rpath - local jhbuild-compiled binaries
should not cause trouble if having rpath (unless, of course, the rpath
is wrong, but that is another issue altogether).
Please do not cc me: I am subscribed to the list.
