You probably wouldn't need export in SUSE, there $HOME/.bashrc is sourced 
in /etc/profile (I don't expect they changed that from 11.1 to 11.2) and 
PATH is exported afterwards, so you'd have ~/.cabal/bin in the path of 
every shell started from the first bash on (and without the test if it's 
already there, the n-th shell would have n copies of ~/.cabal/bin in its 
path). But in other setups, without export ~/.cabal/bin might not be in the 
path of non-bash subshells.
