I noticed this a while ago but probably won't get around to fixing it, so I'm just posting a bug report.
-------------------------------------
b@ui ~$ sudo mount -t ecryptfs encrypted-dir mount-dir

-------------------------------------


There are many references to /bin/ in the ecryptfs source code, even including /bin/umount. for example:

-------------------------------------
b@ui ~/temp/ecryptfs-utils-111$ ag exec.*bin/
src/utils/mount.ecryptfs.c
417: execl("/bin/mount", "mount", "-i", "--no-canonicalize", "-t", "ecryptfs", fullpath_source, fullpath_target, "-o", opts, NULL);
421: perror("Failed to execute /bin/mount command");

src/desktop/ecryptfs-mount-private.desktop.in
4:Exec=/usr/bin/ecryptfs-mount-private

src/desktop/ecryptfs-setup-private.desktop.in
4:Exec=/usr/bin/ecryptfs-setup-private

src/utils/mount.ecryptfs_private.c
833: execl("/bin/umount", "umount", "-i", "-l", ".", NULL);

src/pam_ecryptfs/pam_ecryptfs.c
375: execl("/sbin/mount.ecryptfs_private",
389: execl("/sbin/umount.ecryptfs_private",

Could you elaborate on this a bit more?
i.e. what was the commit fixing the issue?
on which branch?
or we just don't notice the behavior any more?
Also, please add the title of the bug, so we can see what bug is closed
without visiting the bugtracker.

Sorry, it's the first time I've closed a bug, I just learnt it could be
done by sending and email to NUMBER-close@... and sent a blank email.

The fix is contained in the commits

17a21bcf316d11bdf54ec2483abe15f60dbd7cb0

e8ec2dda08d36f3a8d17f840980ea82585d1fc38

and include only changes to the ecryptfs-utils package. I tried my best
to find all cases in the source with hard-coded paths. Feel free to
inspect it further if you like. For me at least, I'm able to mount my
ecryptfs folder with these patches.
