Yes, this is intentional and was done to resolve this bug:

The release notes mention that you should now build with option --with-
dictionary-path=... on system where it remains to be useful (Linux and OS X).

And even then it is good to consider all three points Tino mentioned in the

formats by default it might make more sense to use "share" instead of "lib" if 
you don't have to consider backwards compatibility.
