What I expect is the following: tex is configured such that it can be
called from the command line. As a fallback I add /usr/texbin to the
PATH environment variable, the default after installing MacTeX. I
always recommend and use MacTeX, so that certainly is the version of
tex that I expect.

What I don't understand is your /etc/profile file. It seems to be the
version from Tiger, on your Leopard install. On the other hand, none
of the bashrc or profile files contain a reference to /usr/texbin, as
they should have if MacTeX installed successfully.
If that is a common combination, then we will be in for a rough ride
with the next MacTeX update.
Just to be sure, IIRC the command
grep '/usr/texbin' /etc/* 2> /dev/null
does not list any file on your system.
