You could, but I would suggest you don't. (search the list archives for
.MacOSX/environment.plist to see why).
What I do, and does not require changes to the environment is the
following: ~/Library/texmf/bibtex/bib/ and ~/Library/texmf/bibtex/bst/
are in the default search path, and if you place a symlink (ln -s
original.bib ~/Library/texmf/bibtex/bib/) in the right location, the
file will still be found. You cannot move the file from then on (IIRC).
In my experience this is less fragile.
