There was a discussion about this a few years ago on comp.unix.shell.
Ah, I see, the starting point was actually the reverse assumption
that all systems had /bin/env. Somebody mentioned /sbin/env on
Irix, but I don't know whether that was instead of /usr/bin/env or
in addition to it.
Of course I can always handwave in the direction of those hundreds
of Linux distributions...
