I love answering my own questions...it gives me the feeling I'm talking to myself. Anyhow...

I think I may have a lead for you. Check out the STARTER_JOB_ENVIRONMENT setting which lets you configure the startup environment jobs see on a per-machine basis (it's a condor configuration setting that is).

So you'd want to add something like:


to your condor configuration file. And NOW it should be an environment variable when your job starts. You could also just add $(BIN) and $(SBIN) to the PATH with this approach as well...
