The trick is that the FHS doesn't demand that /usr/foo is physically
different from /foo.  We are compliant in this are because of the
symlink, which ensures that whereever the FHS says that a filename is
/usr/foo, you can get the file by using /usr/foo.  That you can also
access it with /foo directly doesn't bother the FHS in the least.

My main concerns is that the FHS does deliberately not include /libexec,
while the GNU standard mandates that.

Nice explanation of the situation, btw.

PCMCIA support is important, it needs to be added to OSKit.
