[OS X TeX] 10.2 and iTeXMac and tetex

Well, I couldn't make this all work as easily as it seemed, so after
executing the echo commands to get the .login and other files in my
account ( and things still not working), I simply added the tetex path
into /usr/share/tcsh/examples/login to that the set path reads
set path = ( \
/usr/local/bin /usr/bin /bin \
/usr/local/sbin /usr/sbin /sbin \
Then I copied this to the location iTeXMac was looking for it. I had to
make a few directories, but that's not biggy. I should have made a
link, but heck, I can always do that later.
iTeXMac is happy as a clam, now. I think.
The more appropriate solution would likely have been to edit iTeXMac to
point to the right place, but what's the fun of that! Actually, I gave
this a few minutes and threw in the towel because I knew this would
work. I think. Now I'm just waiting for someone who knows more than me
to tell me what a very bad thing I just did. From Gerben's statements,
there seems to be a reason for not having this login file where it was.
Is that right? It's also a secret matter of some sort for Apple, or
Gerben is simply protecting idiots like me from ourselves. ;)
Hmm, maybe if I had started iTeXMac AFTER I echoed into those files it
would have worked.
