No, the configure script applies rpath to the winelib dlls. The wine
binary itself doesn't use rpath by default.

Winelib apps should never link to the .so files using -lXXX. They should
add "import XXX" to the main .spec file and let winelib handle the actual
loading, but never link to the libs directly at the ELF level. At least
that's Alexandre's plan...
