Did you by any chance install a Unix porting system (Fink, DarwinPorts)  
on your machines? What is $PATH for you?

legimc11:~ brunovoisin$ echo $PATH

It might also be that for some reason the folder texmf.local got  
corrupt, and then that reinstalling did not touch it. Did you backup  
and erase it before reinstalling?

Third thing: do you have a texmf.cnf or ls-R file inside  
~/Library/texmf/? There shouldn't be, I think.

Other than this, I don't see.
