Quoting from

"Sometimes, code will hardcode specific library paths when linking
binaries (using the -rpath or -R flag). This is commonly referred to as
an rpath, and in Fedora it is forbidden."

Since Red Hat follows the Fedora Packaging Guidelines this applies to
RHEL & CentOS too.

Please forgive my ignorance but couldn't a file like
/etc/ld.so.conf.d/freeswitch.conf which specifies the libs not solve
this? That would work for Fedora, RHEL & CentOS.
