Unfortunately, one of the problems with the PATH directive is that it 
is buggy. I would suggest using relative paths in it when it is 
possible, since absolute paths are parsed inadequately by this 
directive (until someone will care to solve the bug(s), or, better yet, 
to implement a new, different, better directive, as has been proposed 
in the past).

Depending on the particular case/need, using absolute paths in the PATH 
directive might (by chance) be useful anyway.

Example, using relative notation:

# If "/EFI/BOOT/" is the current working directory, then
# would point to "/EFI/BOOT/X86/"

As mentioned in the wiki more than once, the PATH directive is relevant 
for c32 modules, and only for them.
