What is or is not a system component is quite debatable.
However, it always depends on the specific operating system under
For example, my operating system doesn't (normally) come with the
cuda header.
However, a binary built with the header available could run on it.
This is problematic, because I couldn't rebuild the binary on the
system from the distributed source code.
