rc init path question

Not strictly amd64 related but I'm not subsribed to questions so here

Why is PATH set so restrictively (e.g. PATH=/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/
bin) by rc init?  Startup scripts in rc.d inherit this and seem to have
difficulties finding things upon boot whereas running the script
manually works fine since .cshrc has come into play by then.  Or am I
totally missing something here.??


Best regards,
