I can't answer the why question.  AFAICR, we took the script from RedHat 
and they probably had it that way.  It probably should be in /usr/bin. 
There is a more serious issue than wget.  It's right in the first line 
of make-cert.pl:


To me, it doesn't make any difference.  If /usr/bin is mounted, then 
either /bin or /usr/bin will work.  I don't see these scripts being
used without /usr mounted.

I don't think so.  The code is right there to see.  It's only three
scripts and they need to be in the PATH to run with the instructions 
given.  What benefit would DESTDIR give?
