where is #<primitive-procedure apply>?

I have a lazy-catch handler that examines the stack to see what
procedure threw the exception, and what its arguments are.  In the
case of the system-error resulting from this:
(apply execlp '("doenotexist" "doesnotexist"))
the procedure is #<primitive-procedure apply>, and the arguments are:
(#<primitive-procedure execlp> ("doenotexist" "doesnotexist"))

When this happens, I want to pretend the procedure was
#<primitive-procedure execlp> and the arguments were ("doenotexist"
"doesnotexist").  But how can I recognize this situation?  This
doesn't work: (eq? apply (frame-procedure frame)) because apply is
#<procedure apply>, not #<primitive-procedure apply>.  Is there some
way I can get a reference to #<primitive-procedure apply> to plug into
the comparison?  I could deliberately trigger an error and save the
reference from the stack, but I'd like to know if there's a cleaner
