/sbin/unix_chkpwd and FHS



Hello!
Shouldn't /sbin/unix_chkpwd be installed to /usr/lib/pam/ instead of
to /sbin/?
|--- FHS 2.1 --
| Utilities used for system administration (and other root-only
| commands) are stored in /sbin[...]. /sbin typically contains
| binaries essential for booting the system in addition to the
| binaries in /bin.
[...]
| /usr/lib includes [...] internal binaries that are not intended to
| be executed directly by users or shell scripts.
|--------------

Because _afaics_ unix_chkpwd is needed neither for system-startup nor
for root login, moving it from / /usr/ would not be a problem.
