Just read the above link, can someone explain "we do not permit the
use of rpath in Fedora" in the context of libperl.so?

I had been using 'chrpath --delete' for my package (pacemaker) but was
forced to drop it because the binaries couldn't find the perl shared
If Perl has some sort of exception then ideally it should be mentioned
on that page.
