Mine's done in ~/.bash_profile but it may be elsewhere in RH. ~/.bashrc, ~/.bash_profile, and so on, or like stuff in /etc are the usual suspects.

Well, I don't think there is a default, exactly. It varies for login shells vs. non-login. I think that's what you're talking about. You may need to add it to ~/.bash_profile, too.
