I wrote a small tool that runs in the background and automatically
recomputes the dmenu_path cache when necessary. It requires

# Rerun dmenu_path (reconstructing the cache) whenever a file is
# removed or added to a directory in PATH. Start this in the
# background and enjoy. Requires inotify-tools.

(IFS=":"; inotifywait -q -e move -e create -e delete $PATH -m) \
| while read line; do dmenu_path > /dev/null; done
