I have to admit I also typed the linebreak manually - cause I thought it is necessary...
It' a shame, but all this commandline-stuff still is not very clear to me (old-school mac-user?).
But I try to learn.

And now, after fixtexmftrees worked I have the problem that texexec.pl is not found anymore. As far as I understood by now this is a problem of %PATH.

But which entries I have to change/add in which file?

[powerbook:~] steffen% echo $SHELL
[powerbook:~] steffen% echo $PATH

Si do I add

setenv PATH /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/scripts/context/perl:/opt/local/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current:$PATH
