[OS X TeX] Changing texdoc behaviour

Hello all,

Currently texdoc opens DVI files with TeXShop, PDF files with Adobe 
reader and PS files with Preview. I would like all three types of 
files to open in either Reader or Preview, since TeXShop has no 
simple way of expanding the preview window to the screen width. Is 
there a simple way to do this?  Setting the environment variable for 
TEXDOC_pdf to "open -a Preview.app %s" in my .cshrc didn't seem to 
change the behaviour at all, although the man page for texdoc says it
