I am running FreeBSD 2.0.5.  I am trying to set pico as the default 
editor for the vipw command.  Pico is in the path and can be executed 
from the shell prompt. 

I have the following lines in the root users .profile

EDITOR=pico
export EDITOR

This does not work.  Could someone tell my the correct syntax and file to 
edit to add environment variables to FreeBSD.
