Tried that too (set PATH to just /bin) - same result.
Where is spawn normally located? Is it possible that the library file that normally contains it is actually missing, mis-located or corrupted, so that spawn can't be found? Is there a workaround, possibly involving fork() and exec()? I gather that spawn() is not POSIX-compliant (CMIIW - correct me if I'm wrong).
