If your Web host doesn't let you execute binaries from writeable directories, why not remove write permissions from the directory once you have placed the executables there? I don't understand why this would cause any problems. Do you have other problems you haven't mentioned yet?

    The only binarys we can execute are in /usr /bin or /etc
    /usr /bin and /etc are read-only
      You should be able to execute binaries anywhere if you specify an absolute path rather than relying on PATH. That there are regular use binaries in /etc strikes me as extremly odd.

      Makeshifts last the longest.

        Specifying an absolute path other than /bin or /usr gives the error
        Binary file execution denied in mountpoints.
