Summary0005943: ocamlmklib always adds -L (absolute) directories also the run-time linker path.
Descriptionocamlmklib contains this snippet:

    else if starts_with s "-L" then
     (c_Lopts := s :: !c_Lopts;
      let l = chop_prefix s "-L" in
      if not (Filename.is_relative l) then rpath := l :: !rpath)

This results in absolute paths always added to the run-time-path. This is wrong in any build environment where the object directory is accessed through an absolute path; when using -R, the wrong path is added along the right one.

Contrary, ELF linker tools always require explicit specification of the run-time path, even when the same.

I suggest removing
      let l = chop_prefix s "-L" in
      if not (Filename.is_relative l) then rpath := l :: !rpath)

If this behaviour is deemed necessary for backwards compatibility, the new one should at least be selectable by a global option to ocamlmklib.

remove those two lines and the ( before c_Lopts :=, of course.
