Requiring -rpath is and was the default on a number of Unix platforms. The canonical exceptions are Linux and FreeBSD. That the former is clueless I don't have to say. The latter inherited it from a.out and never switched. I don't think it is a good base to reason upon given all the other clutches kept e.g. not using normal ELF naming for libraries etc.
