Comment (by Olly Betts):

 We should try to push this to a resolution, probably one of:

 * Use `@rpath` conditional on being on macOS
 * Patch (GNU) libtool to handle this (and attempt to upstream the patch
 but we can bootstrap releases with a patched version at least)
 * Document the limitation as proposed in #707:
 > You cannot test against system version of languages (perl, tcl8, php,
 ruby, python2) with an uninstalled xapian-core, period. This will need
 noting somewhere, probably in the HACKING / developer guide docs.
