cannot customize terminal PATH anywhere

Running XFCE 4.12 on Ubuntu 16.04 in vncserver. The PATH variable in any
terminal is very short:
I've tried overriding it everywhere:
- the various *profile files in /etc, home and so on
- various *xinit* files in home and /etc
Nothing seems to work. XFCE seems super-strict in overriding that
variable. I can get it to work just fine in a text-mode ssh session to
that system, but in a terminal running within XFCE the PATH variable is
overriden every time.
I'm mystified as to why this is, and how can I fix it.
