fail  if "." is on $PATH


Follow-up Comment #1:

We get:-
FAIL: execdir-in-unreadable.old-O0,
The current directory is included in the PATH environment variable, which is
insecure in combination with the -execdir action of find.  Please remove the
current directory from your $PATH (that is, remove "." or leading or trailing

We should get the same behaviour as other tests which use -execdir :-
WARNING:  Cannot perform test as your $PATH environment variable includes a
reference to the current directory or a directory name which is not absolute
