That problem already exists today, adding the fingerprint doesn't make
it worse.  IMHO the dump file should really only be searched in
exec-directory.  If you want to find it somewhere else, just pass
--dump-file (or a new option --dump-directory).

And installing the emacs executable in exec-directory?
