I would argue that using /usr/bin/env is the correct way to handle this
and users that this breaks for haven't properly configured their
environment path for their binaries. Non-standard paths should be put in a
path so /usr/bin/env will work. /usr/bin and /usr/local/bin are very
standard, in my humble opinion.
