In the LFS world, compatibility has been less of an issue due to the
nature of configuring/compiling everything. We could move lightcube
there. I was hoping to delay that, though, because of other things in
the lightcube tasklist having higher priority, but I understand about
future proofing, so perhaps the scripts defaulting to /run where a
/var/run symlink is known to still work with the scripts would be the
best compromise?
