depend on libutil which needs a RUNPATH. However, with all the
executables already linked to all the libraries, this is likely
not needed. If there were commands or daemons that did not need
one of the libraries directly, the linker decided to skip the
"unnecessary" dependency, then we could hypothetically need to
explicitly link plugins with libutil and often libglobal.
As it stands, it is not clear this is solving any problems.
