It does not really matter whether the packages are used as design-time
packages or as runtime packages in the end as the compiler must know to
handle both, because the RTL package must ALWAYS be supplied as a
statically added package (shared linking!) if runtime packages are used
(otherwise you could not use runtime packages either).
