  In contrast to FreeBSD, put makewhatis.local under src/libexec and 
  makewhatis into src/usr.sbin. Update man pages accordingly.
Ok, this is going to leave the old version of makewhatis under
the old path /usr/bin/makehwhatis installed, hence it will be hit
first during the shell patch search. I also don't think there is a
very clean way to remove the old file from machines without
being somewhat intrusive upon their system. After giving this
some more thought I'm not sure it was the best idea to move
the install location of this file around after all.
