Okay, I think I figured out where the path I'm getting when using slim is 
coming from.  I never noticed that slim.conf has a default path setting. 
In my slim.conf I have:

default_path        ./:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/bin

It would be nice to have it honor the path in /etc/login.conf but it's 
simple enough to set the path in slim.conf to the same.  Now, if I can 
just figure out why my mouse won't work when I sign on via slim, but works 
if I start X via startx ...
