I am sorry about that, I already received a patch to fix that using the
apparently more standard -I option.

I've thought about avoiding such bugs in the future, and I think instead
of using a scriptlet, maybe manually listing all the native libraries
necessary to run the test suite in the KAFFELIBRARYPATH variable is a
better choice. I'll try that and check it in if it works for me.
