This is why tool auto-installation [1] was created. Even if you do not want to use the automatic
installers, you can still define an abstract tool on master and then 
assign a path for it on each slave (in the node properties page). Then a job can use the tool
without having to hardcode a path. If by "using" the tool you need to do 
something more specialized than just assigning it to a standard build step, the Tool Environment
plugin [2] can be very helpful.
