I assumed you had to build an installable version of kst2 with
./install-kst instead of ./build-kst to avoid the insertion of
build-path RPATHs in the binary.  (To prevent the trojan problem).

I haven't looked through the source, but running strings on all the
files that ended up in the install directory didn't come up with any
instances of the install path, so maybe Barth's suggestion is sufficient?
