I've now got 3 pending bugs against 3 different games, because it seems
that prelink and selinux don't mix well with binaries installed
under /usr/games. (*)

I recall having looked at the FHS when initially packaging these games,
and having left them install their binaries in /usr/games/ since
it was the default behaviour, and I wanted to stick as much as possible
to upstream.

I read the Games SIG packaging recommendations :

There is a mention of _not_ using /usr/share/games/ and putting stuff
under /usr/share/ directly, but no mention of binaries in /usr/games/.

Should we consider it "wrong"? Should the default selinux policy be
