After installing bsd-games, I have noticed that rather than being installed in /usr/games, which is the proper place for these to be, they have been installed in /usr/bin. This doesn't really affect usefulness, other than rendering wargames useless, seeing as it's a shell script that expects the other games to be in /usr/games.

Additional info:
2.17-9, both i686 and x86-64

Steps to reproduce:
1. run "wargames"
2. enter the name of any other of the bsd-games
This task depends upon

/usr/games isn't used by any other package from the binary repos, and
the FHS says that its use is optional.
I don't think I want to install the binaries there,
but I will patch the shell script.

Thanks for the report.
