Originally from login capabilities; it can be modified in a number of
other places as described in the bash(1) manual.

I *think* you're saying that the users don't have that directory in
their path, but you'd like them to.

That depends on whether the shells are "login" shells or not. I think
you can set up ssh to handle it either way. If they are, then you can
put configuration in /etc/profile (I think that's the file, anyway).
But the login database should be the way to do it.
