Yes, use @loader_path.  That is relative to the folder holding the  
executable loading the dylib (that is, "." refers to that folder).

Acrobat does this in its browser plug-in (AdobePDFViewer.plugin).

Use install_name_tool to change the path that your executable uses to  
find those dylibs (install_name_tool has a man page).
