You might want to add your TeXLive bin directory to your shell  
environment by adding it to whatever line sets your path environment  
variable in your .tcshrc or .bash_profile file, as the case may be.  
That will work for programs started from the command line, but not  
those that you start from the Dock or the Finder.  It's good  
therefore to set your path in the file ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist,  
which will determine your path for all applications at login; the  
relevant portion of mine looks like this:

<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http:// 
<plist version="1.0">

You can set other useful environment vars there as well such as your  
default language encoding.  See http://developer.apple.com/qa/qa2001/ 
qa1067.html for more info.

Your default shell is determined by the "shell" property in the  
NetInfo Manager found in the /users/<YourUserID> property list.  This  
can be overridden for Terminal.app windows in the Terminal.app
