I just called it GNU FHS to distinguish it from the LF/LSB FHS. Autotools
for example defaults to

        libexecdir = ${prefix}/libexec
        sharedstatedir = ${prefix}/com

and the LSB FHS (or its interpretations in distros) used or do use

        libexecdir = /usr/lib  (old FHS 2.3)
        sharedstatedir = /var/lib

So there must have been some plan within GNU project(s) when directory
locations were chosen, manpage dirs included :^)
