In my case, my LOCALBASE is /usr and my PKG_SYSCONFBASE=/etc. And I have
some packages that copy some essential tools to /bin and /sbin.
There was a some discussion years ago about some ideas to allow some
packages to install to different places like both /sbin and /usr/bin (in
same package). But that idea never got implemented.
