For me it's

$ find /usr/libexec -type d
/usr/libexec
/usr/libexec/gcc
/usr/libexec/emacs
/usr/libexec/awk
/usr/libexec/gstreamer-1.0
/usr/libexec/getconf
/usr/libexec/gstreamer-0.10
/usr/libexec/mc
/usr/libexec/sudo
/usr/libexec/coreutils
/usr/libexec/man-db

I removed some subdirectories.  Obviously gcc, awk, coreutils, and 
man-db come from LFS.  There are several other entries in /usr/libexec 
that are not in subdirectories.

I rebuilt pulse in a DESTDIR:

$ ls usr/libexec/ -R
usr/libexec/:
pulse

usr/libexec/pulse:
gconf-helper  proximity-helper

Yes, just mentioning them in the Installed Directories line is enough.
