The problem is that csh does not recheck your $PATH, but only hashes it once. You can get it to rehash by running the aptly named `rehash` command, or starting a new shell. ldconfig has nothing to do with locating executables.

Sorry, I missed the part about logging out and back in before. In that case, this is a strange issue.

Have you varified that the executables exist and are executable when you try them? Are you sure that you've typed them correctly? Have you tried entering the entire paths of the executables? Are any of the executables scripts with initial shebang (#!) lines, and, if so, do the targets of the lines exist?
