but it is architecture: any, so we can get special hurd changes in.

We have two possible sceanrios: Support /usr being a real directory by 
or doing it not.

Scenario: Support for a real /usr:
PATH=/usr/bin:/bin: (etc etc)

Scenario: No support for a real /usr:
PATH=/bin: (etc etc)

Note that currently we don't set LD_LIBRARY_PATH at all, but we should. 
is something we need to change anyway, so I will file a bug report. But 
of the two scenarios do we want?

(BTW, it would be a nice idea to try to get X into / instead /X11R6. 
Then we could


(and no LD_LIBRARY_PATH)).
