--disable-rpath does not work on Ubuntu with libtool version 2.4.2
Same on Mac OS X.

Is one supposed to add something specific in the configure.ac ? Here is the configure.ac I use: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/gstreamer/gstreamer/tree/configure.ac

Also see this bug http://sourceforge.net/p/opendkim/bugs/189/. It seems that some started to patch libtool at configure time due to this issue.

See also Debian wiki about rpath issue: https://wiki.debian.org/RpathIssue

This is complete configure command line:

./configure --target i586-suse-linux --host i586-suse-linux-gnu --build i586-suse-linux-gnu --prefix=/usr --exec-prefix=/usr --bindir=/usr/bin --sbindir=/usr/sbin --sysconfdir=/etc --datadir=/usr/share --includedir=/usr/include --libdir=/usr/lib --libexecdir=/usr/libexec --localstatedir=/var --sharedstatedir=/usr/com --mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info --enable-gui=gtk --enable-media=ffmpeg
--enable-renderer=agg --disable-rpath --with-plugins-install=system --with-npapi-install=system --with-npapi-plugindir=/usr/lib/firefox/plugins

I give autogen.sh a chance ... (libtoolize is version 2.2.6)

Running libtoolize 2.2.6 --force --copy --ltdl libltdl --quiet --recursive ...
processing .
Running aclocal -I cygnal -I macros ...
Running autoheader...
Running automake --add-missing --copy ...
Running autoconf ...

Then running configure as shown above gives exactly the same result. Example from libbase/Makefile:

libgnashbase.la: $(libgnashbase_la_OBJECTS) $(libgnashbase_la_DEPENDENCIES)
$(libgnashbase_la_LINK) -rpath $(pkglibdir) $(libgnashbase_la_OBJECTS) $(libgnashbase_la_LIBADD) $(LIBS)

Any idea, how to fix that?

the -rpath is inserted by libtool, which is also what is --disable-rpath is supposed to disable. Did you use --disable-rpath ? What happens if you run ./autogen.sh instead of autoreconf ?

Even if I run autoreconf (2.63) before running configure, I find in most of the Makfiles lines like this one (taken from libbase/Makefile):

libgnashbase.la: $(libgnashbase_la_OBJECTS) $(libgnashbase_la_DEPENDENCIES)
$(libgnashbase_la_LINK) -rpath $(pkglibdir) $(libgnashbase_la_OBJECTS) $(libgnashbase_la_LIBADD) $(LIBS)

I'm on GNU/Linux, gcc-3.4.6.

Building rpm from gnash 0.8.6 worked fine.
Now with gnash 0.8.7 I wanted to switch to a build without rpath and had to discover that configure accepts this option but all Makefiles still use rpath as link option.
Both versions (0.8.6 and 0.8.7) are affected,
