Carlos, All,

On 2018-12-17 21:44 -0200, Carlos Santos spake thusly:
> Notice that /bin and /sbin are redundant with their /usr counterparts for
> BR2_ROOTFS_MERGED_USR=y.
[--SNIP--]
> In one of my current projects there is a /etc/profile.d/path.sh file in a
> rootfs overlay containing
>    #!/bin/sh
>    PATH="$(test -L /bin || echo /bin:)$(test -L /sbin || echo /sbin:)/usr/bin:/usr/sbin"

On the other hand, and as I replied to Markus in his new iteration, is
the overhead to search in PATH so huge it needs this micro-optimisation?

If the commands are in /usr/bin, does it matter they are primarily found
in /bin instead? They are the same commands to begin with, so...

Regards,
Yann E. MORIN.
