What is relinking supposed to achieve?
IMO, useless waste of CPU time, nothing else (well, I'm sure there are
some bordercases where it actually needed, but if so, introduce a flag
to force relinking during installation).
Not entirely true. With your change (or one very similar), all of the
*-exec.tests in the libtool test suite failed. These tests attempt to
run the uninstalled executable. I'm not sure why; it's probably a side
effect of the change, not just "relinking" itself. Investigating...
