Right! You type some executable's name and either a shell interpreter
or something else that works in a similiar fashion tries to locate
this executable in all directories given by PATH. The first hit gets
reported, search is interrupted. So in your case the TeX Live
binaries from TeX Live would be found first – except you forgot to
install something which was installed from teTeX (that uses also TeX
ls -1 /usr/local/TeXLive/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current > TeXLive
ls -1 /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current > teTeX
comm -13 TeXLive teTeX
rm TeXLive teTeX
will show what unique is left behind in /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-
