```Hello,

I have suceeded in doing a build on top of cygwin. However, after
editing some of the cygwin "bashrc" files, teh darcs path and haddock path
still don't show up when I do a "echo \$PATH". I am now reading
http://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/setup-env.html.
"The PATH environment variable is used by Cygwin applications as a list of
directories to search for executable files to run. This environment variable
is converted from Windows format (e.g. C:\WinNT\system32;C:\WinNT) to UNIX
format (e.g., /WinNT/system32:/WinNT) when a Cygwin process first starts.
Set it so that it contains at least the x:\cygwin\bin directory where "
x:\cygwin is the "root" of your cygwin installation if you wish to use
cygwin tools outside of bash.
" .. however, I don't see in which file PATH can be set. Any help? I really
want to get my Haskell build environment set up and cranking away.

Kind regards, Vasya
