All dependencies that are build as shared libraries are copied locally in the same folder as the executable.
On GNU/Linux the binaries are adjusted to use a relative path:
$ readelf -d library.so | grep runpath 0x000000000000001d (RPATH) Library rpath: [$ORIGIN]
In the GNU ld.so search strategy, the

Binaries for Windows, macOS and GNU/Linux are provided.
The binaries were built using the xPack Build Box (XBB), a set of build environments based on slightly older distributions, that should be compatible with most recent systems.
- Intel GNU/Linux: all binaries were built with GCC 9.3, running in an Ubuntu 12 Docker container
- Arm GNU/Linux: all binaries were built with GCC 9.3, running in an Ubuntu 16 Docker container (added in mid-2020)
- Windows: all binaries were built with mingw-w64 GCC 9.3, running in an Ubuntu 12 Docker container
- macOS: all binaries were built with GCC 9.3, running in a separate folder on macOS 10.10.5.
The scripts used to build this distribution are in:
For the prerequisites and more details on the build procedure, please see the README-MAINTAINER page.
The first set of tests were performed on Travis, by running a simple script to check if the binaries start on a wide range of platforms and distributions:
