Description of problem:
This is not a bug, but it'd be nice if you add "/sfs" to PRUNEPATH
in /etc/updatedb.conf
The reason is that if someone uses the self certifying filesystem (sfs, 
http://www.fs.net/), slocate will walk all the directories of all the
filesystems automounted in /sfs. This can be rather slow with shares
mounted over the internet.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Wait for updatedb cron job to run, or by running it by hand

This bug is getting a little old, it's only 5 characters to add in updatedb.conf :)

Would you mind looking into this?
(This bites most SFS users on Red Hat, Debian users are fine, and it wastes
considerable bandwidth when then try to scan our entire filesystems with SFS
across the internet)

Done in 2.6-8.
