PATH in the environment is where your shell searches
for programs to run from the command line, system(),
etc. This allows you to type, say, `sh` instead of
having to type out `/bin/sh` or risking having
`/home/somekiddie/sh` run instead when you type it.

There are two ways to set up alternate places to find
libraries. The first is ldconfig, and you can see
ports run this when you install a port containing
shared libraries for example. The other is to use the
LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to set alternate
paths at run-time.
The 'ldconfig(1)' man page has more info for you.
Take care, mdh
