I didn't really 'set up' Terminal in any way, but I'm certainly
willing to believe that TeXShop and Emacs (and yes, I have the Carbon
Emacs) were set up automatically and Terminal missed out.

Ranganathan:10:00AM % env | grep TEX
Ranganathan:10:00AM % which pdflatex
Ranganathan:10:01AM % echo "Path is $PATH in my $SHELL"
Path is /Users/jswiders/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/teTeX/bin/i386-apple-darwin-current:/opt/local/bin:/Applications/:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/Users/jswiders/bin
in my /bin/zsh

I seem to have duplicated my $HOME/bin in there, but I'm not sure what
else is wrong. . ..  *should* i have the texmf trees in there?  I'd
thought that wasn't necessary, mostly because i'd never had to do it
before. . . .
