 IIRC this was a 64but-only problem but you are copying the lib for 32bit
 as well which seems to be not needed (if I got the history of this bug

 > Note that this simply copies the library from `gcc/libs`. Perhaps we can
 do something similar for #25485, where we first try to run `snowflake-
 client` and if it fails, then only we add it `libatomic.so` to
 `LD_LIBRARY_PATH`. Is that preferred?

 We could do that. But we eventually want to get rid of `LD_LIBRARY_PATH` I
 think and not add another workaround to this workaround if possible. So, I
 wonder if this bug would be a good start to look into compiling with a
 relative `-rpath`. See: #13373 and #13359 where I did some initial work
 some years ago.

 > I reproduced and tested this on Lubuntu 17.10.
