I get errors when I try to use the default packaging because the systems I host on don't have a native mkisofs binary, so I have to bring my own.

It would make updates much easier if I could specify additions to the PATH variable.

    Silly me, there already is an easy workaround, as I had coded configure.ac (and thus configure) to use $PATH !
    So simply set your $PATH to include a way to find the local versions of commands you wish to use, and as
    long as /bin doesn't contain a competing version (for some of the commands) you should be golden.

    FWIW, here is an example of the relevant coding for mkisofs:

    AC_PATH_PROG([MKISOFS], [mkisofs], [NONE], [/bin:$PATH:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/sbin])

    Hope this works for you
