You can post to this list without being subscribed, just mention that
you would wish to receive a Cc on answers! So I include the list now.

Why? I don't see the need to keep such a directory. You probably
have linked your binaries to /usr/local/bin, and that was empty before.

Hmm, other opinions on that?

Best wishes

WIGAN (n.)
If, when talking to someone you know has only one leg, you're trying
to treat then perfectly casually and normally, but find to your horror
that your conversion is liberally studded with references to (a) Long
John Silver, (b) Hopalong Cassidy, (c) The Hockey Cokey, (d) 'putting
your foot in it', (e) 'the last leg of the UEFA competition', you are
said to have committed a wigan. The word is derived from the fact that
sub-editors at ITN used to manage to mention the name of either the
town Wigan, or Lord Wigg, in every fourth script that Reginald
Bosanquet was given to read.
