Better would be:

<para>By default, the supplied value replaces any existing value for 
the specified variable. The attribute <token>mode</token> allows you 
to specify whether the supplied value should be prepended or appended 
to the existing value.</para>

Remove the $PATH part of this assignment (but leave the trailing 
colon); this was the reason for me to add mode="prepend" in the first 
place. If you want you can add another line giving an example of 
mode="append"... maybe LDFLAGS adding " -s" or something like that 
would be acceptable.
