New issue 2256: Do not store the compile-time sys.path in the executable
https://bitbucket.org/pypy/pypy/issues/2256/do-not-store-the-compile-time-syspath-in

Ronan Lamy:

Currently, in a translated pypy, `sys.path` is initialised to the translation-time value of `sys.path`. If that value is ever used, it causes issues that are only visible when running the executable on a different machine than the one it was translated on. That scenatio happened on the `py3.3` branch and went undetected for 2 years.
