Remember what Gerben said on the ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist problem  
(see below). This tells us that TeXShop is indeed aware of /usr/local/ 
bin and /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current, but of  
these only. They are set in the Engine tab of its Prefs; I don't know  
whether it's possible to specify a "multiple" path, such as "/usr/ 
local/bin;/sw/bin" (I've no idea of the correct syntax).
