I think it is in everyone's best interest to have a common view of the 
problem, so just changing the dependency in sysutils/bpm won't changee 

Either we change *all* dependencies to executables in 
/usr/local/{sbin,bin}, or we set the PATH to include 
${LOCALBASE}/{sbin,bin} in, or we require users to have 
/usr/local/{sbin,bin} in the PATH.

As far as I am concerned I would go for solution #2, and I think 
requiring users to have /usr/local/{sbin,bin} in the PATH (which is the 
default in /usr/share/skel/dot.profile) as a workaround until we have 
things fixed seems OK to me.
