After each editing session of your .bashrc file, you need to source it
to make it's contents current. I.e.:
% source ~/.bashrc

Alternately, log out and/or open a new shell which forces a read of the
.bashrc file.

The way I read your note is that you tried running SAC without sourcing
the freshly edited .bashrc file.

So, I am guessing that the environmental variable SACAUX was not set to
SACHOME/AUX, and I am wondering how to do that?
