So how do you set it?

,----[ bash(1) ]
| When bash is invoked as an interactive login shell, or as a  non-inter-
| active  shell with the --login option, it first reads and executes com-
| mands from the file /etc/profile, if that file exists.   After  reading
| that file, it looks for ~/.bash_profile, ~/.bash_login, and ~/.profile,
| in that order, and reads and executes commands from the first one  that
| exists  and  is  readable.  The --noprofile option may be used when the
| shell is started to inhibit this behavior.

Perhaps you need to source .bashrc in .bash_profile.
