Hello Alberto,

We changed some stuffs in the 2.7.x build system to deal with the use of different libraries versions specially for 64bit platforms. I don't see any issue removing -rpath for debian packages.

I'm preparing the 2.7.4 package for Debian and got the following error
from lintian[1]:
E: libapache2-modsecurity: binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath
usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_security2.so /-lpcre

This wiki page [2] explains why lintian/Debian consider this bad.

Previous modsecurity versions did not have this issue. I may remove the
rpath from the library or hack the libtool script to avoid it, but
before doing it I was wondering if this change is due to some
requirement or if changing this would break modsecurity in some way.
