I'm using wubi ubuntu which doesn't have a root account. I have php in a nonstandard location because of lamp. I would like to add a path to the sudo account so I can do sudo php -m for example.

Will it work if you add it to /etc/profile or /etc/bash.bashrc?

What does your /etc/sudoers file look like?
