Path responsibility

In the pacman package devkit-env, the PATH has been appended with $DEVKITPRO/tools/bin. However, the template makefiles of devkitPro add the tools path automatically. My question is: Whose responsibility is it to append the tools path? The Makefile? Or the environment? Both? I roughly remember that the tools were in $DEVKITARM/bin before, but obviously that would be weird when there are devkitPro-wide tools shared between all toolchains.

Users have quite often requested that tools like dslink, 3dslink etc be available on the path which was obviously an issue when we still them in the same folder as the compiler. Packaging everything with pacman let us move them to a separate folder & that path was added to devkit-env for convenience. We still need to figure out if we can do something similar with OSX so we've just left the path in both places for now.

It's less about responsibility & more about convenience.
