[Adduser-devel] Bug#357978: adduser calls /usr/bin/chfn instead of invoking chfn from PATH

Package: adduser
Version: 3.63

Can't exec "/usr/bin/chfn": No such file or directory at
/usr/sbin/adduser line 892, <FIND> line 9.
adduser: `/usr/bin/chfn naath' returned error code 16777215.

# type chfn
chfn is /usr/local/bin/chfn

(I have diverted /usr/bin/chfn so that I can replace it with my own,
which is a compatible replacement/wrapper.)
