then, we are on a Mac, the (default) path should be /usr/texbin.
As far as I know, texbin is a symbolic link made by Mac-Tex.

on the G5:

echo $shell

on the G4:

[i10mac8:~] kaeufl% echo $shell
[i10mac8:~] kaeufl% echo $SHELL

After starting a login shell on the G4:

Welcome to Darwin!
i10mac8:~ kaeufl$ echo $SHELL
i10mac8:~ kaeufl$ echo $PATH
i10mac8:~ kaeufl$

The same values are obtained on the G5

I hope this helps
