Check out the 'man cp' under GNU options. When I need to copy a lot of
data I usually use tar | tar method. I usually am doing that with data
though not system bin directories.
Preserve as much as possible of the structure and
the original files in the copy (but do not preserve
structure). Equivalent to -dpPR.
