Indeed, but automatic selection for non-cross and being able to set it
for cross is not a crazy response.

/var/run has been where things should, one many different operating
systems, for a long time.  It's been documented in BSD hier(7) for
probably 30 years now.  Plus, as I understand it, it's been the default
in GNU/Linux systems for a very long time too, perhaps even in FHS?

Do people understand if this is more than just Debian at this point?

So I think obviously the globl default should remain /var/run.

However, if there is a test for "has this system chagned to /run" and
the build is not cross, I don't care if that particular build switches
the default.
