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
You're misinterpreting the error message (it's a common problem with the
way the error messages are constructed). spawn is not missing. It's the
context. Whatever 'gcc' is trying to spawn is the thing it cannot find.
