	I object.  The FHS is very GNU/Linux specific.  GNU/Linux has
not used /libexec contrary to FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD; which have
followed GNU's precident.  I say we ought to stick with /libexec until
we decided to get close to release.  With any luck, by that time, the
FHS will have been revised to include /libexec, /servers, etc.
