or set RPATH in CMake:


CMake's FindPkgConfig punts on this front (and it's sadly complicated,
but they broke their own conventions to get here).  It's been 10 years
and they've had no interest in fixing some of the problems that my
modules were created to handle.  I stopped using CMake by choice long
ago so I'd prefer to gently steer people toward something
(FindPkgConfig) that I'm not on the hook to maintain.
