Thanks for the hint. What I actually did now (because we don't install 
to system default locations, but to /opt/DIS by default) was:

configure --prefix=/opt/DIS ...


I assume that the content of $RPM_BUILD_ROOT, which check-buildroot 
didn't like, came into the libraries that we build with libtool. Maybe 
with rpath? I've seen that rpath is considered evil. Anyway, it works now.

Thanks for the help, Joachim
