On some systems, when a program is linked against a shared library, it  
is important to link the program when the shared library is in the  
final (installed) location.  This way it is not necessary for the  
library to be in the PATH (actually LD_LIBRARY_PATH or similar) at run  

Perhaps this is not needed on many, if not most, systems.  But in the  
interest of portability this is how it is done for all systems.
