I've been compiling a new LFS base system and thought it interesting to 
try out the new LFS book. I've been using it together with the old one 
to see what the differences are and noticed that for packages where 
"--libexecdir=" is defined, the location has been changed from /usr/bin 
to /usr/lib. (for example FindUtils but also Glibc).  But for Inetutils 
the location remained the same (/usr/sbin).
Can someone shed some light on why these changes are made? Has it to do 
purely with FHS compliance or are there other practical reasons?
