The Pharo distribution uses install_name_tool to deal with it, if you want an example already in osvm code:

So I want the support libraries in a common place (TheVm.app/Contents/Frameworks) while the plugins themselves are bundles in TheVM.app/Contents/Resources.  In allowing one to install plugin support libraries in TheVM.app/Contents/Frameworks I have to use the linker's -rpath feature to specify where dlopen may find the search libraries.  The question i don't see an answer to in Apple's documentation is whether one uses -rpath when linking the plugin, or when linking the VM into which the plugin will be loaded, or both.  Anybody ever done this and know definitively what to do?
