Description

There are a small number of places in Makefile.master where we do not specify full paths. With true(1) this is probably not a big deal, but with echo(1) and install(1) this may matter. We should not be so trusting of $PATH. Especially in the case of install(1), where we're the practically the only user of the SysV version.
