Description of problem:

FHS violation:

# rpm -qf /usr/share/pvm3/pvmgs/LINUX/pvmgs
# file /usr/share/pvm3/pvmgs/LINUX/pvmgs
/usr/share/pvm3/pvmgs/LINUX/pvmgs: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386,
version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.6.9, dynamically linked (uses shared libs),
for GNU/Linux 2.6.9, stripped

Several others in the same directory.

I can't see what problems having some executables under /usr/share causes .
To fix this in pvm would require major reengineering (especially of scripts
and Makefiles) and I don't see that it is warranted.
pvm should probably be moved to extras anyway.
