+Location of system binaries
+---------------------------
+
+The autofs daemon uses several system utilities, including mount,
+umount, e2fsck and smbmount to do its job. "configure" will search
+for these binaries in the PATH and compile in the paths into the
+daemon and modules as needed.
+
+Sometimes the PATH of the compiling user isn't appropriate for this
+task, i.e. it contains binaries that shouldn't be used, or it doesn't
+contain all the needed binaries. If so, specify the
+
+ --with-path=<PATH>
+
+option, for example:
+
+ ./configure --with-path=/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin
