I have a package which builds loadable modules intended to be loaded by

Old versions of libtool have a bug where they don't consider
/usr/lib64 to be a system library directory.  If the upstream tarball
was dist'd on an older platform that could be why.

You could try blowing away the libtool shipped with the package,
running autoreconf and libtoolize --force to get the F8 libtool.


The package containing / using an older libtool is indeed probably the problem, using autoreconf and libtoolize --force, is not the solution I would advice though, esp. when the package is using older stuff as then this often will fail. In my experience the autoxxx stuff is best "left alone" (see the recent breaking of packages with the new intltool for packages which re autoconf-ed, but did not re-auto inittioolized for example).

The better way to fix this is to add the following two lines to your specfile after %configure: sed -i 's|^hardcode_libdir_flag_spec=.*|hardcode_libdir_flag_spec=""|g' libtool
sed -i 's|^runpath_var=LD_RUN_PATH|runpath_var=DIE_RPATH_DIE|g' libtool
