Ok.  For anyone interested in helping out, the relevant code is in
translator/goal/app_main.py.  In particular, on Unix at least, the 10
first lines of entry_point() look if sys.argv[0] contains no '/' and if
so search along the $PATH for the likely full path to the executable.
After a quick look the same code appears ok for Windows too, but clearly
something goes wrong somewhere.  A way to check if these 10 lines worked
is to print sys.executable from the command-line of pypy-c.

A bientot,
