/bin has been a symlink to /usr/bin on Solaris since Solaris 2.0 in 1992,
so even though we deliver all the binaries as /usr/bin/sh, /usr/bin/rm,
/usr/bin/kill, etc. the /bin paths work too.

Though of course, Daniel's also right, the whole question is moot in the
context of what systemd should run, since systemd is only found on
a subset of Linux systems, not other platforms.
