Does libmount provide any run-time control over how it finds these
things?  For example, is there an environment variable or a
configuration file that controls where it looks?  If so, we might be
able to customize it, or at least a user might be able to use it to tell
libmount where to look.  I don't know much about libmount currently,
which is why I'm asking.
