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.

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?
Which version do you use? On my debian system i had problems with 2.1.11 (Could not install packages with apt-get/cfrun combo) and switched back to the 2.1.10 cfengine debian version.
