hmm, tell me, what did you make you convert?
At least those posts that I've read didn't deal with this topic at all!
Although I know that I chose in my firewalling-hint to give the advice to
install iptables into /usr, I was recently convinced to change it to
/usr/local! Funny, isn't it?
The reason that made me convert was, that now I'm able to export /usr/local
via nfs to some 20 clients: they're based a common basis-install, any
applications are only installed once on the fileserver.
This concept is at easiest realizable if we stick with putting anything
after LFS into /usr/local, if not /opt.
These are my EUR 0.02, sorry for having been late...
