SUMMARY: $PATH in sun Gnome2

A couple good answers to my problem came up.

The best answer I found was to modify the ~/.gnomerc which was not present
in the account to add the $LD_LIBRARY_PATH and $PATH to it.  That should
convince Gnome to see what I want it to see.

The other good ideas were to use my $LDFLAGS variable to set the -L and -R
directorys for linking and runtime libraries, and then recompile the
software I want to add to the menu.  Another was to copy or link the
.bash_profile I was using to ~/.bashrc to be sure that bash was correctly
reading my environment.

Thanks Mario Williams, Dave Uhring, and the sysadmin at Stockholm
Observatory for your kind help.
