The problem here is that ifconfig must be in sbin by FHS and by history

put a symlink in /bin, however I am not sure how other DDs think about it,
as this will set a bad precedence.

Don't bother. This could be applied to most other programs in /sbin too...

Is that an argument?

And anyway ifconfig is deprecated, everybody should always use iproute
which *is* in /bin.

But it's not installed by default, is it?
