So that looks exactly like David's report.
How and where do you set PATH in your config files?

Does PATH=x:$PATH sh -c 'echo $PATH'
print a PATH that starts with x:?

David, you said you finally found the error on your side.  Which
file was incorrectly setting PATH in your case and how did you
fix it?  (I've been looking at the doc of sh on a few platform,
but haven't found any indication of startup files which are read
by non-interactive shells.)

The problem was I had a shell startup file which was setting $PATH
each time a new shell is invoked. This of course removed the path
to alocal which is set by 'export PATH=path_to_alocal:$PATH set in
one of the Makefiles.

My fix was to fix the broken part of my shell startup file.
