Scripts must be self-contained. It is grievous mistake to assume  
anything about the environment. So it is best to follow Arnaud's  
advice and use absolute paths to other scripts/binaries that you need.  
If that's not possible, it is probably better to source /etc/profile  
from within the script you're running.

Best regards, Arjen
