At least in Gentoo we remove _most_ of the bundled libraries. Currently
the biggest culprits are probably ffmpeg (Chromium upstream breaks it so
often that I gave up trying to use the system version) and mesa (yeah,
Chromium bundles it and it seems it's patched).

I'm slowly convincing the upstream to have a more distro-friendly
bundling strategy (i.e. staying close to upstream and making it possible
to use system versions). This takes time, and I often need to do the
unbundling work myself.
