I managed to pass it via LDFLAGS to make and not to configure!

Hi guys,

I like to compile Octave and make it portable, so I thought to use -Wl,-R,$ORIGIN/../lib/... to point to the library location even if the compiled package was moved. However the configure process fails, since it gets handed over to gfortran as -R,$ORIGIN/../lib. This leads configure to fail, since only g++ understands this properly:
configure: error: linking to Fortran libraries from C fails

Is there a way without using patchelf to set the rpath e.g.:
 0x000000000000000f (RPATH) Library rpath: [$ORIGIN/../lib]
(i did this for other programs too)

I like to get rid of the LD_LIBRARY_PATH settings!
