Are you starting KDE with KDM?

If so, make sure that you are running the correct KDM.  Set the full 
path in /etc/inittab or wherever it is set in your distro's scripts.

KDM will reset the paths before it runs Xsession.  Check that they are 
set correctly in "kdmrc".

Then Xsession must source /etc/profile either by running as a login 
script or by doing it explicitly.  Check your Xsession script (and make 
sure that you are checking the correct one).
