4 Oops, I actually meant the "vi" package not the "nvi" package (I thought
5 they were the same thing until I looked closer and realised that vi had
6 installed itself on top of nvi). How come vi installs to /usr/bin
7 instead of /bin - many systems I've seen have a small standalone vi
8 installed in /bin so that an editor is available for disaster recovery
9 purposes if the /usr partition can't be mounted for some reason.
