something like .bashrc or .bash_profile or .profile.  Edit that file and

So it's just a "unix setting".
At first, I thaught that installing lilypond with 'sh' changed the settings.
Instead, the lilypond packages rely on this unix default setting.

These lines in ~/.profile explain everything:

# set PATH so it includes user's private bin if it exists
if [ -d "$HOME/bin" ] ; then
