[OS X TeX] problem using /opt/local instead of /usr/local/

I am using bash.
I tried logging out and back in as Pete suggested. To no avail.
What I have realised is that my $PATH has nothing to do with what is
in my ~/.profile file:

# Setting PATH for MacPython 2.5
# The orginal version is saved in .profile.pysave
Where is my $PATH controlled from then?

If bash is your login shell:
• did you launch TextMate anew after you changed ~/.profile?
• is the behaviour different when you log off and in again?
If bash is not your login shell, then you should make the change to
~/.login. And also try to re-launch TextMate and log off and in again.
Some applications do not re-read initialisation files when they
change, some take their run time environment from Mac OS X which is
established only once – at login time.
A common mistake that people make when trying to design something
completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete
