Description

Some software (Qt) supposes the existence of -rpath-link, and seems determined to depend upon it.
It's probably easy to implement, so we likely should.

Though I worry it may cause more problems than it solves, if misused.

Here is the Bug Report on Qt side.
https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-58460

You could explain them what you think about this -rpath-link option.
Quoting: "the alternative to implementing -rpath-link is simply not trying to resolve transitive dependencies at build time. i don't even know why the linux toolchain does that."

Best Regards,
Thanks for your help
