Even if it does, you can always create a wrapper script:


    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/foo/bar; export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    # Or whatever...

So I don't think this is a big deal. If you control the machine enough
to get cfexecd on there in the first place, you also control it enough
to create any environment that cfexecd needs.
