Is /usr/sbin in your path? (Does 'which grep' or 'type grep' find it?)

yes, it is. But configure does not seem to care at this point, using only a set of fixed paths to search for 'find'. As I said, the same issue exists with other recent GNU software as well.

Hmm, that can't be good. I specifically build certain GNU packages (sed, grep, awk, to be specific) in a certain order, and before building other packages, specifically so that later packages can use the GNU versions instead of hoping that a system-supplied one meets the needed semantics.

However, from what I can see of 'configure' in gzip-1.3.9, it looks like it /should/ be checking in $PATH (unless I am looking in the wrong place). Can anyone else confirm whether or not $PATH is checked? If not, why not, and what packages are affected by this?

Hi! I'm a .signature virus! Copy me into your ~/.signature, please!
