Oh sorry, you need to check examples/.lib/delve instead.  I imagine it
will say "/usr/lib64", but it's worth checking as I don't have
check-rpaths so it's good to be sure we're not using tools that somehow
give different answers!

It's the libtool script which decides what to do with the "-rpath"
option, so "-rpath" here doesn't mean anything really.  What's important
is the commands which the libtool script runs (and so what ends up in
the binaries which are built for installation).
