Are you sure about this? /etc/ld.so.conf doesn't even exist on my
systems, and I routinely compile with multiple -rpath specifications.
As the ldd output from ping shows in the online document, there are
several libraries picked up from various different directories, none
of which are standard.
BTW, if this is getting off-topic I don't mind continuing in private.
I'm curious if I understand your second assertion correctly though.
