Thank you

We also see:

And via 'nm -D', we can see that really does use (and require)
the found in the xulrunner directory above.

The problem here is a bug in the build scripts regarding rpath ordering:
see the gcc command above.  The correct command would be:
gcc -O2 -g -pipe -Wall -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -fexceptions -fstack-protector --param=ssp-buffer-size=4 -m64 -mtune=generic -o .libs/devhelp devhelp-dh-main.o -pthread  -L/lib64 -lgtk-x11-2.0 -lgdk-x11-2.0 -latk-1.0 -lgdk_pixbuf-2.0 -lpangocairo-1.0 -lpango-1.0 -lcairo -lgobject-2.0 -lgconf-2 -lORBit-2 -lm -lgmodule-2.0 -ldl -lgthread-2.0 -lglib-2.0  ./.libs/ -Wl,--rpath -Wl,/usr/lib64/xulrunner-1.9.2 -Wl,--rpath -Wl,/usr/lib64
