Hmm, I wasn't even aware that some distributions put these tools into another
location. Why on earth would you want to put them into /usr? How do RHEL users
set up a /usr file system on LVM then?

Anyway, I guess it's fine to assume that $PATH is set correctly
instead of hard coding
absolute path names in the script.

Does anybody object if I change the respective variables accordingly?
