bash looks for external commands in all the directories listed in
$PATH, just like nearly all other Unix programs.  If you have commands
installed in unusual locations, and if you want to use them from bash
without specifying the full path, you'll have to add the directory to
$PATH or add symlinks to the commands in a directory that's already in
$PATH.
