 Actually, this is not true.  I added it to my PATH for years since starting
on RHL-4.  But at some point in using Fedora, I stopped because  I gave up
on the hassle of adding a custom PATH to /etc/profile.d/ every time I
installed a new box.  Additionally, I now have more shell accounts on boxes
that I only drop into once in a while when something's wrong that I've
learned to accept the constant annoyance of not having .*/sbin in my PATH.

i put 'export PATH="$PATH:/sbin:/usr/sbin"' in my ~/.bashrc ...
reinstall, whatever, nothing changes as long as i keep my home folder

(another trick of mine .. a rpm, eg: mycustomizations.rpm to save time
for certain stuff outside the home folder)

Having to do that is a pretty clear statement that the defaults are wrong.
