Something to do with sudo has changed recently, and I'm confused. I've
had a number of "sudo apt-get update" fail due to not finding ldconfig
(running apt-get explicitly as root works perfectly), and today I ran a
script that had a "sudo rmmod" line in it and that failed too. It turns
out that these commands are no longer in the PATH sudo sees, but they
used to be.
In my current setup (Debian unstable) sudo has exactly the same path as
my shell, which (on googling) I understand to be The Right Thing.
Any idea what the change might be? Have these programs moved? Has sudo's
