It appears that these files which I mentioned at the start of this
[~]: ls -alT /usr/bin/texi*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 28218 24 Sep 04:12:55 2007 /usr/bin/texi2dvi
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 557096 24 Sep 03:48:03 2007 /usr/bin/
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 660 24 Sep 04:12:55 2007 /usr/bin/texi2pdf
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 102048 24 Sep 04:12:55 2007 /usr/bin/texindex
are installed in standard Leopard regardless of the Developer Tools.
I do not use these a lot but for some things I do run LaTeX in batch
and then I would like to use the stuff that comes with TeXLive.
So it may be an idea that the MacTeX installation package (scripts) do
some checking for these files in /usr/bin and possibly rename them to
something harmless to get them out of the way.
