[swift-users] Dynamic linker DT_RPATH

Why is the Dynamic linker DT_RPATH set, instead of configure it like this `/etc/ld.so.conf.d/swift.conf` or copying the libraries to a appropriate place?

If I install Swift for Linux on different systems in different directories I can’t run the same binary.

The swift linux shared objects path ist hardcoded.
