Some environments don't correctly load the bashrc on new terminals/xterms (mostly older bashes). Further, this setting is dependent upon login shell versus simple tty.

The new settings found in gumstix-oe/extras/profile can also be applied via:

. gumstix-oe/extras/profile

or

source gumstix-oe/extras/profile

in bash.

    Just saw that this is mentioned more clearly in the long documentation. Lowering priority.

    The command line sourcing option was already documented in the more detailed instructions under Setting up a build environment. I added a brief comment about the sourcing option in Quick start (which is intended for experienced developers who are assumed to be quite familiar with this technique).
