OK, vstinner asked me for more explanation:

 * we at openSUSE are as opposed to rpath as Fedora developers (actually, https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Packaging_checks#Beware_of_Rpath is stolen from Fedora wiki, apparently)

 * none of Python packages (python2, python3 in all various *SUSE related distributions) has the mentioned patch

 * in all 11794 SPEC files in openSUSE Factory only 36 packages use chrpath (many other packages either patch ./configure or use various --disable-rpath options), and there is only one Python related package, python-cx_Freeze among them. Its SPEC file is https://build.opensuse.org/package/view_file/devel:languages:python/python-cx_Freeze/python-cx_Freeze.spec?expand=1 , but I would think that is (being a compiler) quite specialized package which may do something strange.

 * We run rpmlint with checks for rpath enabled on all submissions to our build systems, so it shouldn't go unnoticed.

 * generally, it seems to me, that the patch is really unnecessary for us.
