> When building Samba 4.4.0rc and then doing an install to /usr/local/samba, a directory "libexec" is being created which then contains a "samba" directory with a single "smbspool_krb5_wrapper" file inside (/usr/local/samba/libexec/samba/ smbspool_krb5_wrapper). This is not very clean, is it?
> Since all the files are already inside /usr/local/samba, why repeat "samba" again inside the tree? Is it possible to clean this before the final release of Samba 4.4.0?
> This doesn't happen with version 4.3.6. The same file is placed in "/usr/local/samba/bin/smbspool_krb5_wrapper".

Some additional information: if I configure the build with 
"--libexecdir=/usr/local/samba/bin" the file goes into 
"usr/local/samba/bin/samba/smbspool_krb5_wrapper" which also contains an 
unnecessary repetition. That additional "samba" directory seems to be 
hard coded somewhere.
