New submission from Henry Precheur <henry at precheur.org>:

The function find_executable crashes if PATH is not defined.

I admit that it's an extreme case, but it's probably better to on the safe side of things.

What about using the current directory only if PATH is not defined? This seems to be a reasonable workaround.
