From the DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH it seems you are using Mac. You can put these in ~/.bashrc. If your current $SHELL is bash then each time you open a Terminal it should execute those lines and they will be available to read/modify later. e.g. echo $DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH

I think you'll want to put this logic in a file located in /etc/profile.d/, assuming you're using some Unix/Linux based distribution.
