I agree with all that, but be careful not to delete what was already
declared as environment variable..
type "echo $PATH" to see what was already declared as PATH environment
variable, then copy that line and add yours to the "export" command. Do the
same thing with LD_LIBRARY_PATH and so on...
have a nice one
