Thanks! Looks like ./src/modules/rlm_eap/libeap/Makefile also needs the same fix as commit 7f4489629ec02257befd36c0b5571bc4c5e0e72d (otherwise the install fails there with the same -rpath complaint there):

-        $(LIBTOOL) --mode=install $(INSTALL) -c $(TARGET).la \
+        $(LIBTOOL) --mode=install $(INSTALL) -c -rpath $(libdir) $(TARGET).la \

Now it installs successfully.
