I try to create a ~/Library/init/tcsh/ directory and tu put in it a file
named rc.mine and containing

setenv PATH "${PATH}:/usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current"

It seems to work.

On the other hand, typing <meta>! and pdflatex in the mini-buffer does not
work (zsh is called not tcsh). Have anybody a hint for this ?
