I'm glad you got to the bottom of the problem.  (Don't feel too
badly; I've made the same mistake myself of removing NL from $ifs,
and forgetting that it will be then be preserved in backquote
substitutions.)

But I don't understand why you want to do this: rc automatically keeps
$path and $PATH synchronized.

Tim.
