You've got it:

babbage[~/tmp]% echo $BASH_ENV

This is set in the default ".bash_profile" here (at work).  I've never
changed it.  So, that is not the usual case?  What is the usual value?

Yep.  They did not have it installed here, so I copied from my home
computer and sourced it in my .bashrc.

Thanks for your help!
