Our build system may be broken: /bin vs /usr/bin





tl;dr:  We may be messing up /bin and /usr/bin on some platforms


Sorry for the alarming headline but #913982 was filed, indepedently
corrobated and simultaneously discovered by upstream.

GNU R has long been relying on sed, tar, bzip2, ... and many more base
tools. No issues there. Generally looked for in /bin and found there.

Starting with binary rebuild r-base_3.5.1-1+b2 however, /usr/bin/* path crept
in while the binaries where still in the wrong place.  It looked like a
one-off so I uploaded 3.5.1-2 which built fine for me on amd64 ...but
apparently is already borked again on i386.

I am at bit of loss here. Any ideas?

Please CC me on replies. I will keep a look at the list archive too.

Cheers, Dirk
