Got that. But at the point in time where I need it, there hasn't even been a chance to tamper with these things... (AFAIK)

The problem is that I'm trying to influence (if at all possible) the "environment" that the KT sees while executing /etc/upstart/framework, while it is booting. I had hoped that the "find" command there would be "substitutable" because of $PATH resolution, but it's obviously using the built-in one from busybox at that time.

So the question is pretty much: can anybody find a "hook point" in that script where one could influence how the individual commands are resolved? I was also thinking about aliases which could be (transitively?) introduced through /etc/upstart/(functions|env), but I doubt that at this time of the startup process, any of these would be used, since most of the commands are "busybox" anyway...
