Bug Description

Binaries are no longer runnable when copied to other hosts:

# bin/mir_proving_server
Failed to execute real binary .mir_proving_server-uninstalled: No such file or directory
# ls -l bin/.mir_proving_server-uninstalled
-rwxrwxr-x 1 dan dan 3064944 Dec 28 16:36 bin/.mir_proving_server-uninstalled

and

# ./mir_proving_server
Failed to execute real binary .mir_proving_server-uninstalled: No such file or directory
# ls -l .mir_proving_server-uninstalled
-rwxrwxr-x 1 dan dan 3064944 Dec 28 16:36 .mir_proving_server-uninstalled

and starting the hidden server directly works, but then clients can't find it:

# bin/.mir_proving_server-uninstalled &
# bin/.mir_demo_client_egltriangle-uninstalled
Can't get connection
# bin/.mir_demo_client_flicker-uninstalled
Starting
.mir_demo_client_flicker-uninstalled: /home/dan/bzr/mir/dev/examples/flicker.c:134: main: Assertion `mir_connection_is_valid(connection)' failed.
Aborted (core dumped)

message:
  Add probing for client platform modules.

  The client library now looks in MIR_CLIENT_PLATFORM_PATH (usually /usr/lib/*/mir/client-platform) and loads all the modules it finds in there. At connection time each of those modules are checked whether the MirPlatformPackage matches what they expect; the first one that matches is used.
