On FreeBSD, if tramp-own-remote-path is a member of, then using tramp's
sudo method raises an error similar to:

    byte-code: `/bin/sh -l -c 'echo 9905dea968fdd4a549d307a722e8109b 
\"$PATH\"'' returns with error

On FreeBSD, /bin/sh does not accept the -l flag.  bash, dash, and ksh
do, but that's not part of the POSIX shell requirements (see 
http://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009695399/utilities/sh.html), and
historically the Bourne shell doesn't.

This can be traced to tramp-get-remote-path, where it sends the command
"%s -l %s 'echo %s \\\"$PATH\\\"'", where the first %s is the shell.

I typically remove the -l flag in that function to make my Emacs work.

Again, this only applies if tramp-own-remote-path is a member of
tramp-remote-path; otherwise, that part of the code isn't invoked.  It's
not there by default, but it's very useful.

No response, so I'm closing the bug. Feel free to reopen if it doesn't
work for you.

Best regards, Michael.
