No, libtool is adding an rpath fine; see below:

No, it's not a libtool bug.  Please reread my earlier messages, I'm
not sure how I can make this more clear.  But I'll rewrite it anyways:

The old glib2.spec:

%configure --disable-gtk-doc --enable-static --with-runtime-libdir=../../%{_lib}
# remove rpaths
sed -i 's|^hardcode_libdir_flag_spec=.*|hardcode_libdir_flag_spec=""|g' libtool
sed -i 's|^runpath_var=LD_RUN_PATH|runpath_var=DIE_RPATH_DIE|g' libtool

Note that libtool is mangled *before* we run make.  This works fine if
we don't need to run gtk-doc during the build (but if we do, as if
we're running from a git snapshot, then we get screwed).

If we strip the rpaths *after* we run make, then we're fine.  No
rpaths in the final Fedora glib2 RPMS, but we can still run stuff
