To be precise, the command line (ie, bash) _is_ case sensitive, but  
the filesystem is not.  Thus 'ls /usr/local/teTeX' and 'ls /usr/local/ 
tetex' are different commands -- bash and other shells are perfectly  
able to tell them apart -- but on HFS+, 'teTeX' and 'tetex' are the  
same file.  Not a big deal, but it seems useful to be precise.

All the best,
