In your PATH, or pass it with DATA2INC=(full path of data2inc binary)

I always "make install" snapshots to a prefix, e.g. ~/builded and then
symlink relevant binaries into my path (e.g. from ~/bin to ~/builded/bin/
and ~/builded/lib/fpc/x.y.z/ppc386)

Typical binaries that I symlink are data2inc, fpcmake, fpcres, fpc and
ppc386.  On machines where I work on docs also fpdoc and makeskel
