Description of problem:
/usr/bin/kill is required but no longer shipped by coreutils. 
utils-linux ships /bin/kill
Comment 1 Gene Czarcinski 2004-02-21 13:21:06 EST
coreutils fixed to add /usr/bin/kill back
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2004-02-21 18:05:19 EST
See also bug #116100.
Comment 3 Rob Hagopian 2004-03-04 11:07:24 EST
According to the Linux Filesystem Hierarchy Standard
(http://www.pathname.com/fhs/pub/fhs-2.3.html) kill is required to be

coreutils providing /usr/bin/kil and the "current" lsb requiring

The util-linux-2.12-4 and the latest coreutils fixes things.  First,
/usr/bin/kill was removed from coreutils.  Then, util-linux-2.12-4 has
been changed to provide /bin/kill (it was doing that already) and a
sym-link: /usr/bin/kill->/bin/kill

These packages must be installed together so that redhat-lsb does not
get upset (must be installed --oldpackage for other reasons).

So the system not has both /bin/kill and /usr/bin/kill and the
redhat-lsb-1.3 is OK and a future lsb that moves the requirement to
