I'm pissed off by Arch's systemd-nspawn, since a short while ago it
stopped working when using it without the "boot" option, regarding a
broken PATH variable. Unfortunately using the syslinux bootloader
requires to maintain another install by using systemd-nspawn without
the "boot" option, since /boot of the install I want to maintain is
"bind" to a an Arch Linux partition and I want to use a script working
around this issue. It worked in the past, but stopped working a while
ago. Users can't rely on Arch's systemd-nspawn, if things arbitrarily

[root at archlinux rocketmouse]# systemd-nspawn -qD /mnt/moonstudio ldconfig 
execv(ldconfig) failed: No such file or directory
[root at archlinux rocketmouse]# ls -hAl /mnt/moonstudio/sbin/ldconfig
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 387 Jan 15 03:52 /mnt/moonstudio/sbin/ldconfig

pacman -Q linux{,-rt{-cornflower,,-pussytoes,-securityink}}|cut -d\  -f2
