There was some discussion recently about whether -rpath is A Good Thing,
with Debian voting that it is One Step From Hell. I've always just
modified my ld.config and/or my LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment to get to

Either of these should solve your regression test problem.

Well, 7.0.x *will* run on Solaris, but afaik it should do fine on your
NetBSD box too. Try the above fixups and let me know if you need more.
