Looks like we ended up with the extra path component but not any logic
to iterate over it, IIUC.

One case to keep on the radar:  There can be configuration mechanisms
for the loader outside of the SHLIB_PATH envvar.   If this is apr-util
in /usr/lib, so no shlib-path-var is in use, would we be able to find

Do the various loaders permit an argument resembling
"apr-util-1/" to consult the non-envvar loader configuration?
