Re: Use a default path in exec*p*() if PATH is unset?

But I don't believe that env --ignore-environment should be using execvp

team to decide though.
Possibly not, as it would also require to check whether PATH is set
later in the command line.
Always using execv() if -i is specified would break:
env -i PATH=/bin:/usr/bin prog
To force execv()-like behavior with -i, simply use
env -i PATH=. prog
