You should not need to do that! In /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf/web2c/
texmf.cnf HOMETEXMF is defined, which is then integrated into TEXMF
as first element and which does not use a TeX hash file. Then TEXMF
is used to set a few specialised TEXINPUTS variables.
TeX's behaviour is to search the whole ~/Library/texmf branch, so
files in ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex would be found. See for example /
Besides, what you set in your ~/.bashrc has no influence on TeXShop,
which is an Aqua application and needs to learn such environment
variables in a different way. Then TeXShop's "engines" are tcsh
scripts, so they don't read your ~/.bashrc either.
It's not the valleys in life I dread so much as the dips.
