That still wouldn't solve all cases. I've seen code that does the
equivalent of "which some-program", finds /bin/some-program, concludes
that the installation prefix is "/", and proceeds to look for files in
/share, which doesn't exist and never has.
We really need to get /bin and /sbin removed from PATH, or at least
moved behind /usr/bin and /usr/sbin.
