Anyone care to expalin top me how the export command works, e.g. 
PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/pkgconfig
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH

What I'm after is not having to do it time and again.
I download almost always from source or cvs and it gets to be a drag having to 
export CVSROOT etc.
I think I can put it in bashrc?
Vague I know - it's Sunday morning and all.
