Check if the files in current directory has the RPATH variable defined

for i in *; do file $i | grep -q ELF || continue; readelf -d $i | grep -q RPATH || echo $i; done
Using gentoo prefix portage I got in a situation where some packages did not contain the needed RPATH variable. This command helped me to find out which ones I should recompile
