Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Yes, this is legacy stuff. We have the userland binary paths hardcoded
to /sbin for historical reasons; I'll spare you of the details. The
correct thing to do would be to use $(sbindir) which defaults to
/usr/local/sbin, and then override with ./configure --sbindir=/sbin in
packaging. We'll fix this for 8.3.8.
