after a "successful" migration to profile 17.1 no-symlink-lib gksu stopped working on both computers that were migrated .. re-compilation had no effect builds fine no errors .. problem is run time
since libgksu directory is in /usr/lib64 gksu can no-longer find it ..expects it in /usr/lib .. adding a symlink from /usr/lib64/libgksu directory to /usr/lib allows the gksu program to work.
it appears one of the patches for libgksu may need to be eliminated for no-symlink-lib systems
yeah I know ..gksu/libgksu is on it's way out .. but a migration bug it is as well :) ... something else may fail for similar reasons ..
I can confirm the issue on my ~amd64 system after the 17.1 migration.
Adding the /usr/lib symlink does indeed allow the intended behavior.

What about this patch? It changes installation path of gksu-run-helper to libexecdir/libgksu.
