Body:
Export only changes the variables during that terminal session for that user.  In Ubuntu linux
5.04 (Hoary) to permanently add the variable either /etc/bash.bashrc (for all users) or ~/.bash_profile
(for individual users) need to be edited.

Add these lines to the end of the file you edit.
FORREST_HOME=/full/path/to/forrest
export FORREST_HOME

PATH=$PATH:$FORREST_HOME/bin
export PATH

Description:
Since we describe how to set the Forrest env variables in our docs we should make sure we
have instructions for varying OS and versions.  If you know of an OS that sets variables differently
than that listed in our current docs, please add it in the comments.  Make sure you state
the OS and version as well as the full process to set the Forrest variables.

Current instructions (0.7)
In Unix/Linux:
change directory to the top-level of the forrest distribution and do
~/apache-forrest-0.7$export FORREST_HOME=pwd ~/apache-forrest-0.7$ export PATH=$PATH:$FORREST_HOME/bin

In Windows:
Go to "My Computer", "Properties", "Advanced", "Environment Variables"
FORREST_HOME as C:\full\path\to\apache-forrest-0.7
PATH as %PATH%;%FORREST_HOME%\bin
