Bad $PATH for X11 ports

I already have imake-6 installed on my system but while installing Xorg,
I saw the following:

===>   xorg-libraries-6.8.1_1 depends on executable: imake - not found

In fact, I didn't have /usr/X11R6/bin in my $PATH.  I think this is a
kind of bug, since imake is found when I change my $PATH.

Is it really a correct behaviour to rely on $PATH to look for programs
used to not be located in standard $PATH directories ?
