   But I can scan it if I learn what tools to use. There are no libraries in
/usr/local/lib/ that duplicate libraries in /usr/lib/ and, as far as I've
seen so far, nothing in /usr/local/bin/ that duplicates /usr/bin/.

   If I copy the results of 'ls /usr/bin/' to a text file and the results of
'ls /usr/local/bin' to another file I can run them through 'diff -y'.
There's also another command whose name I keep forgetting that allows
comparison of two files and permits presenting lines only in file 1, or only
in file 2, or present in both. I wish I could remember its name because it's
a very handy tool.

   If there are other approaches to check for conflicts please educate me so
I can remove them all.
