Please don't top-post. The crux of the problem, as I understand it, is
that if the linuxulator tries to load /compat/linux/x/y/ and
can't find it, it then tries to load /x/y/, I'm not certain why.
Ideally, your linux binaries would be linked correctly to their support
libs. In lieu of that, symlinking missing libs can suffice.
