I see.  This could be fixed in ifupdown by not setting PATH in its init
scripts or by setting PATH in the rpcbind init script.

Overall PATH handling in init scripts is a total mess and needs to be
cleaned up.  These days /usr is supposed to be mounted by the initramfs
if it's on a different filesystem than /, so init scripts can rely on it
being present.

Please file a bug - most maintainers use systemd these days where those
problems do not exist, so they won't notice them.
