FWIW, our support (as you've sort of noticed before) for split-usr
(Which is related, but distinct, from non-merged -usr) is sort of tenuous
and while it's your right to do such installs, I'd consider at least
not installing new machines with such a configuration
as a way of very gradually phasing it out.

It's often a pain to handle properly. For example,
It's seemingly not possible to (easily, at least, and
portably) handle split-usr (separate /usr, as in
separate partition) in app-arch/zstd with pkg-config,
as pkg-config shouldn't point to the loader script,
but the real library [0].

As you can imagine, these complications together
with other, more pressing bugs, means it is at least
not very high on my list to look into such issues,
even though I do try when such bugs are within
my purview.
