Description Todd C. Miller 2000-03-06 10:41:34 EST
hier(7) does not describe the /var/state directory.  /var/state is
described in fhs-5.11.1 (http://www.pathname.com/fhs/2.0/fhs-5.11.1.html)
and is used by the isc dhcp suite, among others.

Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-05-29 18:45:59 EDT
This man page describes FHS 1.2, not FHS 2.x

It needs to be rewritten to a modern FHS, though
