The wiki do not cover how to handle rpath when you need to provide a mylib.pc 
or mylib.cmake file in the install directory of your library: this is why I 
asked ! 

If you need to provide a pc file like this: 
>> more mylib.pc 
prefix=${CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX} 
exec_prefix=${prefix} 
includedir=${prefix}/include 
libdir=${exec_prefix}/lib 
Cflags: -I${includedir} 
Libs: -L${libdir} -lmylib 

The question is : how do you do when you need RPATH in the pc file ? 

Do you hard-code (this may not be portable) the rpath option : 
>> more mylib.pc 
prefix=${CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX} 
exec_prefix=${prefix} 
includedir=${prefix}/include 
libdir=${exec_prefix}/lib 
Cflags: -I${includedir} 
Libs: -Wl,-rpath, -L${libdir} -lmylib 

Or is there a specific variable to handle this ? Like for instance something 
like this 

>> more mylib.pc 
prefix=${CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX} 
exec_prefix=${prefix} 
includedir=${prefix}/include 
libdir=${exec_prefix}/lib 
Cflags: -I${includedir} 
Libs: ${CMAKE_RPATH_LINKER_OPTION}, -L${libdir} -lmylib
