Isn't it possible to have bind mounts specified in a snap file?
Alternatively, can't --datadir be specified at configure time? I don't
know much about snap, but I hope apps can expect some sort of
filesystem layout... So, I think it is worth considering if adding a
configure option (if one is missing) instead of runtime detection
might be better.
