       I do not think that keep a loop symlink of USR->/ is a good idea,
       since you will never be able to do a "find / -name
       *something*". So, we need to correct those scripts. (* There are
       scripts with references to /usr/python or /usr/local/perl)

Doesn't find know enough not to follow symlinks to directories?
I would think it ought to.

    find / -P -name FOO

What does -P do?  I don't see it in the documentation of find
on my machine.
