Dear Gerben,

Thanks. I looked at the file. I am running Mac OS X 10.4, and it only  
mentions /etc/profile and /etc/csh.login, and of course, /usr/share/ 
misc/man.conf. Those files have the proper entries. But this entry  
must be somewhere else, else how does it appear when I relaunch the  
shell (bash, in my case) after updating the PATH variable. Let me ask  
my local Unix guru to see if any other files are affected by default.

Just one more minor thing I noticed, the script adds comments both  
before and after the modifications. It first adds '#TeX modifications  
start ...'. Later it adds '#teTeX modifications end ...'. Of course,  
these are only comments, but is there a reason for the difference?

While I am at it, let me point out one more thing I noticed. (Maybe I  
should really be sending this in a separate mail, but ...) When I try  
to use the gtamacamericantypewriter fonts, I get a complaint about a  
mistake in line 22 of t1gtamacamericantypewriter.fd. When I go to / 
usr/local/TeXLive/texmf.gwtex/tex/latex/gtamacfonts, and edit the  
files (t1|ts1|ly1)gtamacamericantypewriter.fd, it works.
I have to change \AT at Scale to \AT@@Scale on line 22. Could you please  
check out if it is indeed an error, and if it is, correct it in your  
next distribution?

Thanks again, and three cheers for all the good work that you have done.
