Don't believe the locate database is used for searching for executables.
I did notice that the leading terms in the PATH were /sw/bin which
means that there is some Fink software around. Was there a Fink teTeX
installed? This has lead to all sorts of problems because of the way
fink places its bin directory at the front of the PATH. If the only
Fink software that has been installed is teTeX I'd remove it and then
check your .profile, .bash_profile, etc., to see if there is anything
that loads a config file that sets the profile.
