how to change $PATH enviroment variable


I found a program called Duplicate File Finder. This program needs JAVAUNIX to be installed. This is where i got stuck, the ./configure does fine. make gives me:

make-jrt-stub --verbose JavaUnix.class
make: make-jrt-stub: Commando niet gevonden # means Command not found
make: *** [JavaUnix] Fout 127

this is what i found on the javaunix website:

Building JavaUNIX requires the build directory of javaUNIX to be in your $PATH environment variable. If you are getting errors like "make: make-jrt-stub: Command not found", the JavaUNIX build directory is not in your current $PATH environment setting. The easiset way to solve this is to put the current directory into your $PATH environment setting using the command "export PATH=$PATH:." and build within the JavaUNIX build directory.

I have been trying to do this but i honestly dont know what to do?
The directory path is:


Thanks for your reply,

Bas Nelissen

ps. Does someone know a better program than Duplicate File Finder for sorting mp3 files and video files?
