Bug description:
  During current snapd autopkgtest, a failure can be observed:


  error: cannot pack 
 mksquashfs call failed: 
  libgcc_s.so.1 must be installed for pthread_cancel to work
  Parallel mksquashfs: Using 1 processor
  Creating 4.0 filesystem on 
 block size 131072.
  error: cannot read snap file: "/var/lib/snapd/snaps/.local-install-136125945"
         is not a snap or snapdir

  I traced the underlying call to the following:
  "/snap/snapd/current/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.23.so" "--library-path"
  "/snap/snapd/current/usr/bin/mksquashfs" asdf asdf.squashfs

  (the real call has more arguments, this is a simplified version that
  produces the failure)

  To observe this, one can create a VM based a cloud image from
  https://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/impish/current, then run the above command in
  the resulting environment.
  Doing so will test against snapd v2.51.4 (12883).
  Retesting with edge 2.52+git635.gada2d87 (13323) produces an equivalent 

  Running a more bland `/snap/snapd/current/usr/bin/mksquashfs asdf
  asdf.squashfs` without messing with library paths has mksquashfs behaving as
  expected.  Also, getting a v2.51.3 snapd seems to behave itself.  Updating 
  2.51.3 -> 2.51.4 also works.

  One can see a passing mksquashfs by taking libgcc_s.so.1 from hirsute
  and placing it in the library path for the above call.

  In the working scenario, it appears that libgcc_s is being obtained
  from outside of /snap (and also libz).  In the failing scenario, this
  external copy of libgcc_s is not being loaded (per gdb info sharedlibrary),
  but libz still is.
