Yes, but for some obscure reason, few people do not still see the path

In other cases adding to the file /usr/share/init/tcsh/rc the setting
of the path did solve the problem. This is just empirical evidence
which I cannot explain (in fact, in these hard-to-solve cases, even
the personal rc file is NOT loaded). 
So, I would suggest these people to add the path in
/usr/share/init/tcsh/rc and tell us whether they suceeded.
