So if BosConfig says /usr/afs/bin/fileserver, but the
@afssrvlibexecdir@ is /usr/sbin, it will actually find the program?
Is "/usr/afs/bin" some magic string in the code?

How would this work is BosConfig was created with version-1 and
then used with version-2, where @afssrvlibexecdir@ changed
between versions 1 and 2?
