If a program using libpcap uses pcap-config to retrieve library information, it will receive instructions to encode an rpath to a standard library location.  This can cause a QA warning when packaging the "customer" of libpcap.

Steps to Reproduce

Build libpcap in any project and in a development shell run "pcap-config".  You will see -rpath info as part of the data returned.
