try reading my comment instead of getting huffy. if you have a distro
that does something stupid like break the correct default m-i-t
install setup, you should actually point it out. the ones i checked
were sane and installed lsmod into /bin (and some symlinked lsmod for
backwards compat with modutils into /sbin).
