So you also use "./configure --libexecdir=/usr/sbin", I assume.

OK, thanks for your opinion. I am wondering if it's really worth changing
anything here, as most people seem to be happy with using
- --libexecdir=/usr/sbin. Does it make sense to break this? I am not so sure
anymore.

Actually, I think it should stay in /usr/bin, as you can start mysqld as a
user, too, if you have a correctly configured ~/.my.cnf file. Plus this is
where most of our scripts expect it to be :)
