There are two kinds of UNIX: BSD and SysV, and there are two kinds of 
UNIX shells: the Bourne shell (in the beginning lacking job control) 
and the C shell families (having that job control). Members of the 
first family are: sh, bash, ksh. Members of the latter family are: csh, 
tcsh. Since Apple delivers with Mac OS X (a BSD UNIX) shells from both 
families you should track changes of basic settings like the search 
paths to the programmes in both shell worlds.

It isn't such a bad thing to invoke 'sudo /etc/csh.login /etc/profile' 
and change the settings for path in the one and for PATH in the other 
file ... usually it happens once or twice in ten years.
