Bit of a silly suggestion, but just to cover the obvious stuff, I've found
that when I install software into directories that are in my $PATH I have
to logout and log back in on a particular console before it'll recognise
the new programs within the $PATH.

Not quite sure why this is, maybe someone can enlighten me?

Like I say, probably an inappropriate solution, but just maybe you've been
logged in on the same shell for all this time - if the programs are in
your path yet you can't get to them I expect it's going to be a weird
solution :)
