Please check if '/sbin' is included in your $PATH variable. There are
distros, e.g. Debian, which do not set the common 'sbin' paths in the
shell when executed as non-root user. This issue comes up now and then
but so far we have not decided on how - and if at all - to solve it.

Personally, I always set the PATH variable myself so no suprises there.
