library not found on resulting executable

I too compile and use alpine on Solaris Express.
I even distribute the compiled version to all my colleagues every time
I build it.
Almost all of them use Thunderbird in office and alpine from home
(except me. I use alpine all the time).
Some of them are using Solaris 8/9/10. They are able to use alpine
just by using LD_LIBRARY_PATH
set to /opt/csw/lib where they have installed openssl from
blastwave.org. /usr/sfw/lib is not present on
earlier releases of Solaris by default.
That was an example. I find setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH and using it
makes it more portable than
hard linking it.
I wouldn't like to see -R being used while linking. Alpine is also
available through SFE packages for Solaris.
Which means it can be downloaded and installed over the net on Solaris
systems, with different
configurations and library files in different locations.
Compiling with -R will restrict its portability... :(
