OK, I'm confused now.  The current LVM tools are installed in /sbin, not
/sbin/lvm-*/.  If you are getting packages from distros that place the
binaries in /sbin/lvm-*/ you need to talk to the distros.  AFAICT, the LVM
tools *should* be in /sbin

This from the current FHS 2.1 standard:

Utilities used for system administration (and other root-only commands) are
stored in /sbin, /usr/sbin, and /usr/local/sbin. /sbin typically contains
binaries essential for booting the system in addition to the binaries in
/bin. Anything executed after /usr is known to be mounted (when there are no
problems) should be placed into /usr/sbin. Local-only system administration
binaries should be placed into /usr/local/sbin

And this is what the FHS has to say about /lib:

The /lib directory contains those shared library images needed to boot the
system and run the commands in the root filesystem.

So how does having LVM binaries in /lib/lvm-*/ _not_ violate the FHS?
