svn+ssh client: how to get svnserve in path?

(My apologies if this is a FAQ; I could not find an answer in the faq
list. I'm also sending this email a 2nd time because the 1st time it was
sent I was not subscribed to the email list; my apologies for any duplicate

I can access my subversion 1.1.1 server (on a Linux Redhat 8 system) via
ssh-based svn client (running on WinXP-cygwin via: 'svn co
svn+ssh://<server_hostname>/<repo_pathname>'). However, my svn-server
binaries/libraries (particularly 'svnserve') are required to be in /usr/bin
and /usr/lib, respectively (or some other "common" path).

However, I'd prefer to operate 'svnserve' and other things exclusively out
of /opt/local if I can. Anyone know how I can make adjustments to do so?

Any changes to the given user's login path appears to have no affect, hence
I looked at the following man page:

 From the login(1) man page:

    "PATH defaults to /usr/local/bin:/bin:/usr/bin:."

I suspect this path will be my limitation? Any way to add to or change
it? Note that my attempts at per-user path additions failed (for both a
bash- and csh-based shells).

Any thoughts?
