It should be possible to set and restore FPATH locally around where the
compiler is using it; so long as you aren't using shell functions the
shell shouldn't be worried.  It would be nice for someone to try this so
we can illustrate the solution.

Other shells will have the same problem; the difference may be they
don't tend to supply as many functions that are supposed to work out of
the box, though there are enough functions around that doesn't seem like
much of a difference.
