[OS X TeX] i-Package install locations

Hi all,

I recently ran in to a problem I hope somebody can help me with: I used 
i-Installer to install the LCDF Type Tools package (version 2.2) from the 
archive at TUG. It seems that i-Installer want to put the new binaries in 

However, it seems that the standard TeX distribution (TL 2004 stable) has 
already installed an older version (ver 2.15) of the package in 
/usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current, and the default search 
paths are set so that it's the older version that is found when I try to 
run the utilities from the CLI!

Any idea how to fix this? It seems that /usr/local/bin has various other 
binaries in it, notably the gs package, but it's not in the path and cannot 
be accessed via the CLI.

Thanks in advance,

Nike Vatsal.
