This is basically an inter *nix variant flame war. Depending on which camp you 
subscribe to your answer will probably be one of:


and I'm not advocating one over the other.

My point was that these are supposed to be *nix commands like any other and so

'/usr/local/bin' is a good default case which platform packages can change to 
suit their variant.
