The problem here is that ifconfig must be in sbin by FHS and by history
(would break too many scripts). So moving is not an option. I can however
put a symlink in /bin, however I am not sure how other DDs think about it,
as this will set a bad precedence. 

So I am inclined to ignore this wishlist bug, however I wait for reponses on
the developer mailing list.
