My thoughts are similar to Branko's. Compiled-in paths are for the
birds, and pretty much kill most types of binary distribution.
Searching for a utility in a PATH environment is almost as bad --
/usr/local/bin (a common Subversion installation location for Unix
systems) isn't always in the default path for users like httpd.

The right solution is to fork a new process or thread to take care of
this task.
