      Perhaps none. Technically most of the libraries and all the plugins
      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.
