I ran into a similar(-ish) problem this morning trying to do a make
installworld from an nfs-mounted filesystem where I had done my buildworld
on another machine.  What I discovered after much frustration is that
installworld invokes make with a complete override of PATH such that it only
looks for things in /usr/obj/... and the fact that the ex binary exists in a
normal PATH place doesn't help.  In my case, I had to mount remote:/usr/obj
over the local /usr/obj before doing the make installworld.  (This was my
first foray into updating binaries on machine A from a build done on machine
B.  The instructions in the makefile left room for imagination.)

I know this isn't a complete answer to your question, just a clue: it's
probably looking for /usr/obj/usr/src/bin/ex
