R(UN)PATH is not always evil. Setting R(UN)PATH to /usr/lib, /lib or other 
library directories already known to system by default is evil. Setting 
RUNPATH to e.g. /usr/lib/privatelibs (those which do not have public headers, 
e.g libkdeinit4s in KDE case) is acceptable. However, CMAKE_SKIP_RPATH=ON 
breaks the 2nd use case and likely other valid ones. What I'm trying to say 
here is that this option is too generic to be an ultimate solution.
