Once again, I hit the answer, not the "answer to list" button,
in my first try...

This dont work! The PATH is only set for the shell-script itself and
the "child"-programs started inside this script.

You can source (include) the script to yous current shell with
> . pathrddtool.sh
or include the PATH statement in your ~/.bashrc

I prefere to install packages in /usr/local/$PROGNAME/ and
make a symlink to /usr/local/bin/
