File::Which simulates the behavior of the standard 'which' program: it
searches directories of a user's PATH (as returned by File::Spec)
looking for executable files matching a given name.
On Debian /usr/bin/which is guaranteed to be available, but going
through the Perl implementation can still save a fork.
