OBS request 738494 from Neal will change %_libexecdir from /usr/lib to /usr/libexec. This was proposed in July on the opensuse-packaging list with only Thorsten and Jan replying (Jan being in favor).
I don't want to merge it right now without giving you some time to discuss this change. So please, if you have good reasons why this is a bad idea please speak up!
This would break some packages like purpose, which call binaries inside libexec from a libary which is 32/64-bit co-installable using baselibs.conf.
What's the right way to handle that?
This is already broken right now as it is currently packaged. But if you want to fix it, the way you'd do it is by splitting out that binary into a subpackage and have the library packages have a dependency on that subpackage containing the libexec binaries.
