I see. So in worst case scenario the current directory would be
checked many times -- which would be a quite strange implementation of
looking for shared libs, though --, and if everything is on a
sometime-super-slow fs like afs, than it might take a lot of time to
actually start the binary. Right?

BUT: Are you preparing installations on a cluster? In that case you
really don't need the binaries from the build tree so you should try
to install and see if the colons disappear!
