This is an issue with jemalloc's handling of the TLS model when being
dlopened..  See:


The recommended way to build a libjemalloc that is suitable for being
dlopened is to use '--disable-initial-exec-tls' when building it.  Take
a look at the INSTALL.md file, and look for this option:


There is a way to workaround this bug by doing an LD_PRELOAD of
libjemalloc when invoking python, but this will only mask the problem
and we can't expect users to do/know this.

The way I see it, you can try to convince jemalloc's maintainer to
enable that flag.

BTW, the reason 'find_library' can't find drmaa's library is because the
.so is being installed in a non-standard directory.  I don't know why
the package was made like this, though.
