This depends on your shell.  If you use bash, modify your path variable 
in ~/.profile.  If you use tcsh modify ~/.tcshrc.  In my .tcshrc file, 
I put the following to include X11 binaries:

setenv PATH "/usr/X11R6/bin/:$PATH"

The equivalent bash style is

export PATH


PS  If you don't know what shell you have copy and past the following 
line in a terminal window:

env | grep SHELL
