You can safely add it to your PATH. Installing gs will do that for you.
But the order of the TeX and /usr/local/bin path is indeterminate, so you
still may end up with the TeX directory before the /usr/local/bin.
Here are a couple of things you can do:
- Hand edit your PATH settings:
1. Edit /etc/profile and /etc/csh.login and make sure /usr/local/bin is in
your PATH but before the TeX directory
/usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/. Do not put
/usr/local/bin at the absolute beginning of your PATH, just enter it
before the TeX directory.
2. Restart Terminal
- Remove the Tools from the TeX location:
1. List the contents of the LCDF Typetools package (Pkg Contents View)
2. Remove all LCDF binaries listed there from the TeX binaries location
