I hit this same behavior working with a git install on a nonstandard path, a
while back.

One solution, at least on Linux, is to set "UsePAM Yes" in your sshd_config
and include "auth required pam_env.so" in the PAM settings for sshd. (This
is the default in many distributions.) You can then configure your custom
PATH in /etc/environment, and it *will* get read by non-interactive SSH
sessions. Note that /etc/environment is not a shell script; the only things
you can put in there are comments and simple variable assignments.

~/.ssh/environment is also an option. You have to turn on
PermitUserEnvironment in sshd_config for that to work.
