It looks like a mess:

- /opt/local/bin: Do you have DarwinPorts installed by any chance? But  
then, if I remember correctly from the time I had it installed myself,  
this directory is added at the end of the default path, not at the  

- /usr/local/bin: Why have it twice?

- /usr/X11R6/bin: Is this really necessary? I have Apple's X11 myself,  
up and working, and I don't have this in my default path which reads:

	Portable-de-Bruno:~ brunovoisin$ echo $PATH

Is this for using X11 apps from within Terminal.app?

- /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current: Why have it twice  
as well?

powerpc-apple-darwin-current: This looks like what should be there for  
a standard OS X install + gwTeX. The rest may be necessary depending on  
what's installed on your setup, but I think it should appear  
afterwards, not before, and with no duplicate entries.
