Nah, not really.  You can always run it with its full pathname:

        tcsh> sh /usr/local/etc/rc.d/foo.sh start

Are you using tcsh as your login shell?  If yes, just run:

        tcsh> rehash

This should 'refresh' tcsh's idea of what commands are available.

I don't remember about zsh, but I think it has a 'rehash' command too.

GNU bash should take care of this automagically.
