Ah, I was not aware of -DCMAKE_SKIP_RPATH=ON landing in compat 14.

(Otherwise, I would not have filed bugs for these issues... or I would
not have filed them without at least mentioning that the Debhelper

Still, the bugs I did file were 'useful' in the sense that it was the
impetus to do some real-world research in the first place. In that
sense, I am *very* much +1 an archive rebuild for this; from my
initial investigations by hand, I suspect it will make quite a few packages
reproducible and not cause widespread breakage.
