If you want your shell to be able to find programs installed in /usr/
local/bin, then /usr/local/bin needs to be in your PATH environment
variable. The command Robert gave

     export PATH="/usr/local/bin:$PATH"

can be added to your ~/.bashrc to cause /usr/local/bin to be put at
the beginning of the PATH (before the paths your system already puts
there, like /bin and /usr/bin) every time you launch your shell.
