I was actually surprised to find this undocumented.  I could have
sworn I'd done so, but apparently, I only did in a commit message:

    commit fad599f7f147ee71e5581211fb654c2c8c491cd8

        Remove automatic RPATH - add user rpath support
        Make Configure recognise -rpath and -R to support user added rpaths
        for OSF1 and Solaris.  For convenience, add a variable LIBRPATH in the
        Unix Makefile, which the users can use as follows:
            ./config [options] -Wl,-rpath,\$(LIBRPATH)

I'll go add a note now...
