https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=263675 --- Comment #4 from Stefan Eßer <se@FreeBSD.org> --- No, libexec is not for shared libraries, it is the place for binaries that are not typically started from an interactive shell (but rather as a service, from inetd, or invoked as a sub-process that is not run on its own). The major difference is that commands in libexec are not in any shell path by default, you have to invoke them with a full path (or temporarily add libexec to the PATH in the current process environment). Since this is a command that is waiting for requests as a background task started as a service via etc/rc.d, I'd think that it should be placed in libexec and the full path should be patched into the rc file. This will not be necessary for a command in sbin, but then it will clutter the list of commands presented to an administrator that uses name completion in a shell, for example. And I'd try to avoid that for commands that are not used in interactive shells. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
