Note that it installs into a private subdirectory, so people writing
apps can't just use -lsystemd-shared in their linker lines in their
build systems, and unless they also go to the effort of adding an rpath
or LD_LIBRARY_PATH for /usr/lib/systemd/private to their executables,
dynamic linking will also fail.
