While fixing #8391, I realized that subprocess doesn't support bytes program name if it's not an absolute path:
-------
$ ./python
>>> import subprocess
>>> subprocess.call([b'echo'])
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/home/SHARE/SVN/py3k/Lib/subprocess.py", line 449, in call
    return Popen(*popenargs, **kwargs).wait()
  File "/home/SHARE/SVN/py3k/Lib/subprocess.py", line 681, in __init__
    restore_signals, start_new_session)
  File "/home/SHARE/SVN/py3k/Lib/subprocess.py", line 1116, in _execute_child
    for exe in executable_list)
  File "/home/SHARE/SVN/py3k/Lib/subprocess.py", line 1115, in <genexpr>
    executable_list = tuple(fs_encode(exe)
  File "/home/SHARE/SVN/py3k/Lib/subprocess.py", line 1114, in <genexpr>
    for dir in path_list)
  File "/home/SHARE/SVN/py3k/Lib/posixpath.py", line 75, in join
    if b.startswith(sep):
