In particular: "By default if you don't change any RPATH related
settings, CMake will link the executables and shared libraries with
full RPATH to all used libraries in the build tree. When installing,
it will link all these targets again so they are installed with an
empty RPATH."

So, if you don't install to a well-known location or to one mentioned
in /etc/ld.so.conf, LD_LIBRARY_PATH or the like the binaries' dynamic
dependencies are not resolved by default, and remember "ldconfig". ;)
