Hi Robert,

In Leopard the PATH variable gets set with a different procedure than  
in previous Mac OS X version, and most likely you see the result of  
this new behavior.

Create in your /etc/paths.d directory the file "TeX" with a single  
line "/usr/texbin" and in your /etc/manpath.d directory the file "TeX"  
with contents "/Library/TeX/Distributions/.DefaultTeX/Contents/ 
Man" (all without quotes), this should allow the system to properly  
set PATH for you.

For more details see LeopardTexFix at http://www.tug.org/mactex/morepackages.html
