d'oh -- sad part that I have done that but on non-kfreebsd systems,
$> dpkg -S `which sysctl`
and then I saw in procps's debian/rules explicit removal of /sbin/sysctl
so I just thought that it was for some reason installed under both /bin/ and
/sbin/... "it was late" would be my excuse

I could not reportbug on porter boxes due to absent reportbug (tried that) :-P

And please don't! ;) /sbin/ is the location for it (unless that
everything-in-one-bin movement wins)
