           Summary: _PATH_STDPATH can get redefined in includes.h if paths.h
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 3.5p1
          Platform: ix86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Build system
        AssignedTo: openssh-unix-dev at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: rvz at lucent.com

In versions of openssh 3.2.3p1 and later, the defines.h file was modified and
the following was added:

#  include <paths.h> /* For _PATH_XXX */

Unfortunately the above comes after the inclusion of defines.h (through
config.h) which sets _PATH_STDPATH to USER_PATH if it has been defined in the
configure file.  The result of which resets _PATH_STDPATH back to the system
default and not what was computed during the configure run.

Once compiled, this results in execution failures if the command being run is
not located under the PATH of the system default _PATH_STDPATH.
