[R-pkg-devel] R 3.6.0, rpath and StagedInstall

I have one (or two) packages that use an external library. So we use -rpath
to tell the dynamic linker about it.

But R 3.6.0 dislikes this and howls about an absolute path ending in
error. So we use StagedInstall: No.  Which gets a NOTE.  Which is still not
ideal and I would like to avoid it, but am short of ideas as to how.

Has anybody else encountered this and found a workaround, or can think of one?

Thanks,  Dirk
