--- Comment #2 from Frank Ch. Eigler <fche at redhat dot com> ---
In the context of fedora https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1970312 we
should reexamine this.  Here's another idea.

- retain /etc/profile.d/debuginfod* but change its behaviour:
- instead of containing one hardcoded path, let it search a config file/dir
  such as /etc/debuginfod-urls.d/ and assemble the environment variable
- the --with-debuginfod-urls=FOO elfutils option would arrange to drop in one
  file into this directory (say /etc/debuginfod-urls.d/elfutils.url)
  with the content FOO
- other add-on distros (rpmfusion?  ISVs?  local administrator?) can do the

That way a local admin can remove or update or add more files.  A user can
of course still override it in their .profile.
