Yes, but is /usr/local/bin on the PATH _before_ sshd tries to
exec bash to exec scp? If root's .bashrc is not read, and that's
where you are adding /usr/local/bin to the path, then scp won't
I've found that ssh gets the initial path from either
/usr/include/paths.h (or something similar) or from compile-time
comfiguration options _when_compiling_ssh_. And IIRC, it
used separate initial paths for root and non-root.
In short, make a link from /usr/bin/scp to /usr/local/bin/scp.
