18 Before starting to build TeX Live, set up your PATH so
19 that the system can properly find the files. If you set up your login
20 scripts as recommended in <xref linkend='postlfs-config-profile'/>, update
21 the needed paths by appending to the
22 <filename>extrapaths.sh</filename> script. The programs are always
23 installed in an &lt;ARCH&gt;-linux subdirectory and on 32-bit x86 this is
24 always i386-linux. For x86_64 and i?86 we can generate this as $TEXARCH:

29 If upgrading from a previous year's version, you should manually
30 edit <filename>extrapaths.sh</filename> to ensure that the version for
31 the year you wish to use is the only TeX present (some people need to
32 keep multiple years available to ensure there are no regressions in
33 their documents).

58 The standard MANPATH and INFOPATH path are specified above to
59 ensure they are included. If they are already set in the boot script
60 procedure, the pathappend function will ensure duplicates are
61 removed, so including them here will do no harm.
