[lug] cron question

Hello everybody,

Does cron need a full path specified for commands? I run cron with a
mixture of scripts (where I specify the full path and which run fine)
and PATH-resident commands that can be run from the command line (i.e.
echo and sitecopy). All show up in the cron logs, but "sitecopy" and
"echo" never run  and I can't figure out why there should be a
difference. Any ideas what I'm missing?
