Au contraire, it did work last time I tried (which I must admit was a
few months ago, so I cannot be sure just when we broke it).  And anyway,
how would you expect it to magically work differently on some other
platform, for a library that is neither present in the system's standard
search path, the rpath (which we failed to provide anyway), nor the
build-time-relative path?  I'm not quite sure what other plan the
dynamic linker should follow.
