That block was supposed to be in a bunch of if statements.  Fixed.
The default path that gets set is unchanged.

So?  I don't use Debian for development.

I write software for me, default configs will continue to reflect how my
development environment is setup.

I assume people can use setenv/export to override it, or if it
bothers them that much, use vi/nano/pico/ed/ex/emacs/xemacs.

As a side note, there's zero real reason for this particular env var to
exist at all (See #16017), beyond "no one has cared enough to write
what should be a simple branch".
