Are those the only two packages in BLFS currently using /usr/libexec?

I realize that the issue right now is with LFS's Glibc, so just for the
record I prefer individually named directories. But I can go either way,
it is rather small. I know I will continue in my personal builds to
create individual directories for each package the needs a libexec, but
that's just me. Whatever we decide for the books is fine with me.

I cc'd BLFS-Dev for anyone wishing to discuss this issue as it pertains
to BLFS.
