It's not that easy: you need, as I was complaining on the MacTeX
list, a decent ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist for this to work. (I think
I made earlier this year enough experiments on this topic in Mac OS X
10.4/Tiger in bash or tcsh based environments to state this. But I am
still curious if there is a way to solve this with RC files!)
And, Bruno, please learn that Gerben Wierda changed some time ago i-
Installer in a way that is does not rely on false settings in
~/.MacOSX/environment.plist. ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist is no more a
bad thing for i-Installer -- it can be a threat for the runtime
environment though! Meanwhile there are a few GUI applications to
correct this file if needed.
Wasting time is an important part of living.
