Sounds like your path doesn't contain the tex directories. To see if 
this is the case, you can type "echo $PATH". There are several things 
that could be wrong here, so I can't be very specific.

If you reconfigure all of your installations from i-Installer, this 
*should* fix the problem---unless you've been changing your startup 
scripts in bash or tcsh.

Sorry I couldn't be more help, my mac's in for servicing...
