Hmm, it seems like a bad idea to hard-code directory names like that.
At least I think you ought to have a comment explaining why those
directories need to be in the PATH, so that someone for whom /home/tyson
has no meaning has a fighting chance of being able to build it.

Here you remove the same file twice -- that is probably a mistake.
