[OS X TeX] Leopard MacTeX PATH problems, still

I posted in January about my PATH variable not being set correctly on  
my Leopard OS X system, following MacTeX installation. The symptoms  
are programs and scripts other than TeXShop not being able to latex  
files (like TextMate, which I wanted to try). Currently the PATH  
variable is:

[AireyDC:~] dairey%

I was under the impression that after running the leopard fixes from  
Dick Koch, tex should be in there somewhere. But they are not. The  
appropriate files are in etc/paths.d with the same permission settings  
as the help file for the leopard fix package describes, but I don't  
think everything is as it should be.

I also tried installation of Basic TeX, but that did not correct the  
path either.

How do I manually set my PATH variable?

Thank you.
