Shell PATH not being reread

I have just installed FreeBSD 6.2 Release.  I su to root and run

pkg_add -r cvsup-without-gui

It installed fine

I edited the ports-supfile
cd /usr/share/examples/cvsup
vi ports-supfile

but when I go to run

cvsup -g -L 2 ports-supfile

It tells me it cannot find the command

I logout completely then login again and su and I can now run the same 
command from the /usr/share/examples/cvsup directory.

It seems the path is not being rebuilt or reread when I added that 
package but when I logout and login it works.  I know I can type in the 
the full path and command but was wondering if there was a solution to 
reload/rebuild/reread the path so I don't have to login/logout/login

env for myself is

env for root is
