> - Compare constants to variable values, rather than the reverse. This

> *FS#26119.
> - Mount /run with exec permissions. This is done to mirror initscripts.
> - Perform path lookup for binaries with respect to a given basedir
> *instead of the real root.
> - Insist that /dev and /proc be mounted at runtime. Required for usage
> *of bash's process substitutions.
> - Explicitly create the buildroot rather than letting it be created by
> *the first run build hook. This avoids errors when HOOKS is empty, as
> *seen in https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=966344.
