What about platform-dependent executable files (of an auxiliary nature)?

This doesn't seem clear to me.  Are the helper scripts in texmf/bin/arch,
or in texmf/scripts/package?  It would seem to me that the latter would
contain the helper scripts that would help main programs in texmf/bin/arch,
but the above sentence seems to be saying the opposite.
