I just checked again.
- autoreconf does not seem to make a difference
- ./autogen.sh is enough to remove rpaths, --disable-rpath is not needed
If running ./autogen.sh is preferred to chrpath, then I think this
should be documented in the wiki. I had exactly the same issue with
gnome-chemistry-utils long time ago and I ended up using chrpath.
