RATIONALE
    Some older implementations searched the current directory for the
    file, even if the value of PATH disallowed it. This behavior was
    omitted from this volume of POSIX.1-2008 due to concerns about
    introducing the susceptibility to trojan horses that the user might
    be trying to avoid by leaving dot out of PATH.
