That bugzilla just complained that sudo -V printed info
that conflicted with the behavior of sudo. Apparently the update
they pushed merely made sudo -V stop printing anything except
the version so it no longer conflicts :-).

At some point they did at least add a secure_path option you can
set in the sudoers file like so:

Defaults secure_path = "/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin"

You still get a hard coded path, but at least you can change
the hard coding in the /etc/sudoers file to something like the
above string.
