I noticed in virt-manager, it has an exec on /usr/bin/python. In FreeBSD,

Not at the moment.

Oy. Can this be configurable in the next release?

I think you're asking for something like what libvirt did in commit
e4384459c, by using:

#!/usr/bin/env python

instead of


Hmm, the system python binary is under /usr/local? That doesn't seem right,
/usr/local is supposed to be where things go when a user installs things by
hand. For example none of the software the Fedora distributes put anything in
/usr/local, but by default ./configure && make install for most software roots
things under /usr/local.

Yeah, that sounds like it is not FreeBSD's default python installation
location, but your hand-installed version, or else a bug in how FreeBSD
packages things.  At any rate, using /usr/bin/env instead of hard-coded
paths would work around that just as easily as it will for python being
installed anywhere else other than /usr/bin/.

Default for FreeBSD is /usr/local for all portstree software, because this
software isn't part of the base operating system, so it can't go in the
base distribution.

Also, do you have any ideas for the NLS location?
