E package-modifies-ld.so-search-path

The package changes the search path for the runtime linker, but is not part of libc. The offending file is in /etc/ld.so.conf.d.

It is not okay to install libraries in a different directory and then modify the run-time link path. Shared libraries should go into /usr/lib. Alternatively, they can require binaries to set the RPATH to find the library.

Without this precaution, conflicting libraries may trigger segmentation faults for what should have been a conflict in the package manager.
