Using a ~/.MacsOSX/environment.plist is something I prefer to avoid.  
Using .bash_profile would only work for my user account. Generally i- 
Installer installs things system-wide, and accordingly adds path  
settings in /etc/profile (for bash):

## TeX modifications start at Wed Aug  9 02:04:18 CEST 2006
## Do not remove the previous line
if [ `whoami` != "root" ]
   export PATH
## Do not remove the next line
## TeX modifications end at Wed Aug  9 02:04:18 CEST 2006
## setloginpath added /usr/local/bin start at Wed Aug  9 02:21:24  
CEST 2006
## Do not remove the previous line
if [ `whoami` != "root" ]
   export PATH
## Do not remove the next line
## setloginpath added /usr/local/bin end at Wed Aug  9 02:21:24 CEST  

and similarly in /etc/csh.login (for tcsh). The first addition comes  
with the TeX i-Package, and the second with the GhostScript i-Package.

In this way, and after adding also /opt/local/bin manually in these  
files, I get in Terminal (which is a login shell):

$ echo $PATH

No. When double-clicking epspdf.app, I get the menu bar (epspdf -  
file - edit), but then immediately an error message pops up:

175: command not found: gs --version
/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/tk.rb:1948:in `__invoke'
unhandled exception
	from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/tk.rb:1948:in `_invoke'
	from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/tk.rb:1948:in `_ip_invoke_core'

I tried looking for the complete log in Console.app, but don't know  
which particular log file to look at.
