It appears to be already fixed here:

  $ objdump -p .libs/libguile-gnutls{,-extra}-v-0.so | grep PATH
    RPATH       /home/ludo/src/gnutls/lib/.libs:/usr/local/lib
    RPATH       /home/ludo/src/gnutls/guile/src/.libs:/home/ludo/src/gnutls/lib/.libs:/home/ludo/src/gnutls/libextra/.libs:/usr/local/lib
  $ objdump -p ../../libextra/.libs/libgnutls-extra.so | grep PATH
    RPATH       /home/ludo/src/gnutls/lib/.libs:/usr/local/lib

IOW, the `.libs' directories all appear _before_ `/usr/local/lib', which
is exactly what we want.

This shouldn't make any difference (I did try it also while chasing the
bug  ;-)).
