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.
