[oi-dev] runtime linker and non-standard libraries location

I'm working on aspell port and have the following question about shared 
libraries. In current library/ncurses the library is located in 
/usr/gnu/lib or /usr/gnu/lib/amd64.
I can path -L /usr/gnu/lib/amd64 or -L /usr/gnu/lib option to ld while 
compiling objects. But what to do with a run-time linker? Should I patch 
the package to use -rpath linker flag or just assume that we have new 

Current ncurses component from Oracle provides neccessary links in 
/usr/lib and /usr/lib/amd64.
