Re: Install Shell helper scripts in share or libexec?

From hier(7):

                libexec/  system daemons & system utilities (executed by other
                share/    architecture-independent text files

so this shell script is a "program", which is more like a utility than a
"text file".  So I think the right answer is libexec/yourpackagename.

Another clue is: if you put it in share, to which subcategory does it
belong?  I don't see any good places.
