[Mono-dev] [PATCH] Make sure mkbundle executables work if they are run from a path on the PATH environment variable.

This is a patch to enable mkbundle executable files to work when they are
run from a path that is on the PATH environment variable.

Mono mini has a function probe_embedded() which looks for the program's
file (using argv[0]). If the program is run from a path on the PATH
environment variable then the open() fails and only a single parameter is
sent to the mono_main() which in turn causes an if condition to print the
help and exit.

This patch searches through the directories specified in the current
environment's PATH variable and tries to open() then first file found.

Apologies if this is not the right way to submit patches but I had a quick
look at the contribution page online and my understanding is that I must
send a patch this to the community with the most likely or relevant
owner(s) on the CC.

Please let me know if I need to do anything else to push this (change
