Re: Should Emacs define site-lisp load-path for Dynamically-Loaded Modul

   Recently I have began on packaging Emacs packages for OpenSuSE Linux,
   many of whom use dynamic modules.

   I noticed that almost all packages that use dynamic modules compile
   the module after installation and store it in the package directory.

   Emacs define site-lisp for locally installed libraries however the
   directory is usually contained inside <datadir>.

Might be a good idea to double check
https://www.gnu.org/prep/standards/html_node/Directory-Variables.html .

The site-lisp directory can be read-only, and should only contain
architecture-_independent_ files since it sirts under datarootdir.

   That makes me ask the questions should there be a second site-lisp for
   dynamic modules in <libdir> by default?

Are they architecture-dependent?  Are they libraries or other object
files? Seems so, off the cuff sounds reasonable.
