rationale from Matthias Benkmann:

I wonder if we should not add the switch
--exec-prefix=/
to the configure for psmisc. I think the tools from psmisc should be
available even when /usr is not mounted. After all, sysvinit's killall and
pidof are also on the / partition. And fuser is a tool someone might need
for troubleshooting even if /usr is not mounted. Let's say I run umount -a
and one partition can't be unmounted because it's busy. I would need fuser
to find out who's the culprit but chances are that umount -a just
unmounted the /usr partition (unless that was the busy partition).
