Importing Paths into Cfengine Environment

Periodically I find it necessary to install packages via 
shellcommands on debian hosts.   When I do so I get the following errors.

/bin/dpkg --co: dpkg: `ldconfig' not found on PATH.
/bin/dpkg --co: dpkg: `start-stop-daemon' not found on PATH
/bin/dpkg --co: dpkg: `install-info' not found on PATH
/bin/dpkg --co: dpkg: `update-rc.d' not found on PATH
/bin/dpkg --co: dpkg: 4 expected program(s) not found on PATH.

I understand that cfengine is cleaning out the ENVIRONMENT and requiring 
absolute pathnames for security purposes.    Unfortunately in package 
installations the paths are coming from the package and not from cfengine, 
is there any way that I can tell cfengine what those paths should be so 
that when a package install is done from cfengine I don't get these 
errors?   

Thanks,

Brian Seppanen
