Description

illumos doesn't have execvpe support and it should be added. I found out while trying to compile cronie 1.5.0. The workaround is to use execvp and do the environment handling myself.

Other systems doesn't have it either as it seems to be GNUism. Not sure, what is policy on these things, but I suppose we could have it, so more software would compile out of the box.
