Installing a local version of PEAR on a shared host

Hi, in the instructions to install a local version of PEAR on shared host (here), the instructions say:
Then, if you add ~/pear/bin to your path as the first entry in .bashrc (or whatever your startup file is), and run the command:
Can you guys please make some more sense of this? This is the contents of my .bashrc file:
# .bashrc

# User specific aliases and functions

# Source global definitions
if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then
        . /etc/bashrc
I don't see anywhere there where adding "~/pear/bin" would seem logical.

Maybe if someone is really nice, they could show me what my .bashrc should look like with the new addition.

Thanks for helping.
