I must admit I know very little of the Automake's libtool support, so I'm
not sure whether this is a bug or not; still, the automake documentation
reads somewhere:

  For libraries whose destination directory is known when Automake runs,
  Automake will automatically supply the appropriate -rpath option to
  libtool. This is the case for libraries listed explicitly in some
  installable _LTLIBRARIES variables such as lib_LTLIBRARIES.

so we have *at least* a documentation issue.  I should look at this more
carefully (probably after the 1.12 release); for now, I'm opening a report
in the bug tracker so that we won't forget about the issue.

Thanks,
  Stefano
