It looks like an embedded, compiled Applescript in the latest Lyx- 
installer.app. The internal paths (as seen by using BBEdit) seems to  
know about gwTeX (Gerben's i-installer TeX Live based distribution)  
as well. Sigh... it should start to use the new structure to find the  
active distribution.

Good Luck,
