[Fedora-packaging] libtool rpath issues

This has been discussed here before:


but never really solved.  Even if libtool is fixed, it's not clear to me
that existing packages will benefit until maintainers release new tarballs.

My reSIProcate upstream tarball is bootstrapped on Debian, so when I just do

tar xzf resip....
./configure  && make

on Fedora x86_64 it uses rpath /usr/lib64.  Same outcome when using
rpmbuild.  The issue is discussed in more detail in the review request
for my package:

It would be really helpful for me and presumably other packages to
answer two questions:

a) out of the available hacks (such as those described in the earlier
discussion on this list), which one is currently recommended to solve
the issue in the existing package?

b) should libtool or something else change to avoid this problem in future?

This has also been raised in the libtool mailing list:
