Thanks for the reminder. Looking at the stack trace in your original email, I
think the problem is somewhere else -- we should not be calling path.make
with empty string.

Could you:
1. Add the following code right at the beginning of 'common.find-tool' and
tell me what's printed.

local p = [ modules.peek : PATH Path path ] ;
ECHO '$(p)' ;

2. Go to control panel and tell the values of "PATH" "Path" and "path"
variables (whichever exist).

I suspect that some variable looks like


and that confuses common.find-tool.
