[IPython-dev] newbie path problem

I'm running ipython 0.8.1 on MacOS X 10.4.10.  I've configured ipython as a
system shell (in /etc/shells) which is probably unadvisable but I did it
anyway.  I don't do job-switching in the shell so I don't need to worry
about that.

As I understand it, upon launch, ipython will examine your PATH variable and
create aliases for everything in it.  My problem is that I can't figure out
how to change my PATH.  Currently it's set to
"/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin".  I can't seem to figure out where this is
declared, and consequently, I can't figure out how to change it.  My efforts
to edit /etc/profile and ~/.profile have proven fruitless.

Can I set something in my ipythonrc to modify the path at launch, before it
generates aliases?
