Samuel Holland (smaeul on IRC) noted that /sbin and /usr/sbin are

lspci(1) don't work as a normal user, nor do they work under sudo.
I originally felt that having the sbin directories in $PATH might be
confusing to new users because there would be a significant number of
utilities added to their tab complete and such. Additionally, they
would not be able to run most of these binaries due to insufficient
permission. However, ip(8) and lspci(1) are very commonly used by users
to debug issues, and it is often requested of them to run these when
they are asking for help.
Therefore, I am proposing that we add "/usr/sbin:/sbin" to the end of
the default Adélie $PATH.

symlink appropriate binaries in /usr/bin or simply install there
instead of */sbin?
