Yes, strings shows the full path of prefix provided to configure. And  
I can tell you from experience it is not relocatable :).

Here is a bug I recently filed for pgAdmin which discusses the use of  
install_name_tool to make the reference relative. Certainly it would  
be better if they could be compiled with relative references, but at  
least I found a solution without having to understand gcc.
