Bug ID: 26178
           Summary: Can ld add -rpath-relative
           Product: binutils
           Version: unspecified
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: ld
          Assignee: unassigned at sourceware dot org
          Reporter: jolivier23 at gmail dot com
  Target Milestone: ---

I've found it's nearly impossible to set $ORIGIN in certain scenarios due to
the variable getting interpreted as either a Makefile variable or environment
variable to configure or many other build tools/scenarios.

Could an option be added to ld to set a relative path and let ld write the
$ORIGIN string?


ld -rpath-rel='../lib'

would set rpath or runpath to $ORIGIN/../lib

This would make setting origin based rpaths much simpler from build scripts

In our own scripts, I've resorted to patchelf for post build settings to avoid
$ORIGIN purgatory
