why hardcoded pathes at all?
don't we have the path set to both /bin and /usr/bin?

possibly there are situations where hardcoded pathes are ok, but i guess 
in most cases not.
not even in chapter 5, as the standard-path is prefixed with the tools!

i propose to remove pathes wherever possible in all scripts.
