Slackware and /usr/sbin/sbin/

Slackware and /usr/sbin/sbin/

Recently I've been converting my system over to ELF.  In the process of this,
I noticed that in addition to /usr/sbin/, there's also a /usr/sbin/sbin/ which
has many of the same files contained in /usr/sbin/.  I originally installed
my system using Slackware 2.x, so I assume this is due to Slackware.

Is /usr/sbin/sbin/ a standard Linux attribute, or is it a glitch which I can
safely combine into /usr/sbin/?  I've been re-installing binaries from the
Slackware 3.0 distribution, and I can't seem to remember IT using

I want to get rid of it, but I'd like to be sure first!  :)



1. /usr/sbin/traceroute ha1 ksh: /usr/sbin/traceroute: not found

/usr/sbin/traceroute ha1
ksh: /usr/sbin/traceroute:  not found

The system is System = SunOS
Node =
Release = 5.6
KernelID = Generic_105181-15
Machine = sun4u

How? Why?  I have traceroute on SunOS 5.7

download it and compile it like the way
a c compiler and gzip were missing!
Can it be true?
