Default path.

I have a FreeBSD 7.0 p2 box. I have upgraded openssl by installing the 
latest port. When I use openssl version I am still calling the base 
/usr/bin/openssl. How do I change my default path to use 
/usr/local/bin/openssl instead? I am the only one (for now) who logs 
into this box but would it be "better" to make this a system wide change 
or just a per login? I and all subsequent users use tcsh. I have tried 
adding /usr/local/bin/openssl to path variable in /etc/login.conf. I 
logged out and back in but it did not work.

Any help would be appreciated.
