[OS X TeX] environment variables

Hi all,

I'm running gwTeX on Leopard.  I've used fonts purchased from Adobe  
for awhile, with no problems.  But now things seem to have broken  
down, and I can't seem to reinstall the fonts correctly.  The crux of  
it (as far as I can tell) seems to be this:  when I run updmap, it  
seems to be looking at various files in the /sw subdirectory, rather  
than /usr/local/gwTeX/, which I believe used to be used.  I'm guessing  
this means that for some reason a fink TeX distribution has found its  
way onto my computer, as well as the gwTeX distribution that I'm  
trying to use, and that some environment variables aren't set  
correctly.  Does that sound right, and if so, how do I get rid of the  
fink distribution and its environment variable settings?  (I already  
tried simply reinstalling gwTeX using i-installer.)

I realize I have given minimal information.  I can give more  
information if my guess about the source of my problem is wrong.
